well, i am both critical and cynical but in a positive way. all i do is draw boundries between others opinions/perspectives and mine whilst being critical AND cynical, but in a positive way so that it helps me stay true to my beliefs/priorities. so i mean is it ok to be critical AND cynical with every single person or situation in a very positive and productive manner? Thank you for reverting back to me for a clarification.
OK. Yes, indeed it is OK to be bothe cynical and critical with others so that you can be yourself--true to yourself and your beliefs and priorities. That way you don't let others intrude on who you are. As Ruiz points out, don't take anything personal, or as I like to say to others,
What you think of me is none of my business
