It’s fine to critique people you like, as long as you don’t condemn or laud their personal worth. If they can’t inspire you, they can still help you–they can serve as a cautionary tale.
It’s okay to admire people you dislike, as long as you don’t condemn or laud their personal worth. If they can’t serve as a cautionary tale, they can serve as inspiration.
To me, it was never about worth; that perspective fosters erroneous judgment and wayward idealism. It was about doing what I could with what I had in front of me. Not just for the obvious benefits, but for the hidden ones as well. Eat the ribeye, but make use of the hide, bone, and marrow. Let others fret about taste and prestige.
You’ll leave them in the dust as you become a pure expression of capability and awareness.
