Teaching vs. Criticism!!!!

Azadeh Azmoudeh

It took me about 2 hours to calm down and try to write here. Yes! I am a human being too, and yes I get frustrated; nevertheless, I have tried so hard to understand some people's motive to criticize! Also, I am trying for a week to understand that what it takes for some people to forgive. In my previous blog, I brought a piece about how some women are perceived as bitches in the eyes of some people (male/female); however, since that piece was e-mailed to me I could not find the source so I did not type it there. I had no intention to make others believe it was mine at all. As one of the readers had put a comment that I did. True! I had to mention that I did not the source, but for God's sake I did not. Do I deserve to be penalize for a such a mistake? Interestingly enough I appologize to some readers, but did it satisfy his highness? No! Had I known that I needed to be perfect to be allowed to write in this site, I would have NEVER registered.

I have no problem to be corrected, as a matter of fact, I invite people to correct me whenever I make a mistake. However, I do believe there is a way to teach, remind, or correct a person. When someone criticize another, one should ask oneself where the criticism is coming from. During my stay in the US, I have been surrounded my American or native English speaker population; never had I felt the way I did with someone so egoistic as one of the readers in my blog. The same time, I felt bad for him too. He wanted to crush me calling me"Lazy", probably literary thief, or whatever. I am asking you what was the motive? Did it work at all? Please next time before you leave a comment for anyone, ask yourself why you want to tell the writer. Let's respect people of who they are not what we expect them to be.

Dont let it get to you.

welcome to Iranian. com. Sadly this is something we all experience here from time to time. There are many here whose main purpose, or so it seems, is to look hard for a reason to make personal attacks on others when there is no just cause. They are often annonymous but annonymous or not, they have nothing of value to add. I think its due to their inability to think of anything interesting to write themselves they fall back on attacking others and think they are clever or witty. They look for petty things to pick on and completely miss the point of the blog. They havent learnt the basic skills in effective conversation.... slow learners I guess. Its really kind of sad and I wonder what their real lives must be like?

Best thing to do is ignore them, they eventually leave you alone. Dont let them get to you ..... You made it clear enough and you dont need to apologise for what you write in a personal blog. Your blog was great..... keep writting.

Ebi jaan! You couldn't have made any better indication of where the education has been going. We are losing the point:) Thank you so much.

Funny thing is that he tells me I am here to hear nice comment from male readers, and he recommended me to use iraniansingle!!!!! How ridiculous, and rude he could be! It is when I say people stop perceiving anyone through your lenses. Thanks for your feed back. Unfortunately, some of us have not yet learned that attacking is not the ONLY way! If it worked back home it is so outdated here:)



you have the gut!

he could critisize if it was an article on front page .this is your personal blog and you can write whatever you wish .they could have this policy to let selected people blogging here which they dont have such a policy right now .I had an anonymous comment as well that even mocked my avatar because its childish(LOL).

a quote of the day for you :

The great New Yorker editor and writer, E.B. White, said when accepting the National Medal for Literature, “A writer’s courage can easily fail him . . . I admire anybody who has the guts to write anything at all.”
