Maat E's Mental Health Message

Practice being lovingly critical. 

Unconditional love does not mean loving under any condition. Love also  means we accept who people are, but it does not mean we accept anything they do to us. In order to manifest these aspirations we need to practice being lovingly critical. Often, criticism takes a harsh form and when delivered it can come across as negative or punitive. Loving criticism involves giving feedback with a loving intention. The aim is to share honestly from a place where you care about serving the highest good of those involved. A part of being lovingly critical is also using the exchange as an opportunity to exhibit your optimal self. When you communicate feedback be your best self. 

Dr. Ma'at E. L. Lewis
