What was watching the Super Bowl like at your house? We all can get high-spirited and enthusiastic about different things, some more than others. I love to be around people that are excited and passionate about whatever they love, as long as it isn't disagreeable to me.
The caption above sends more of a message to me about our criticism of others. I know I've used the phrase 'what an idiot' more times than I can count. I'm not saying it wasn't true, but it does speak arrogance. When we think 'they should have done it this way, not like that' then we can come across as a know-it-all.
Some people confuse criticism as advice. They are not the same. Advice is well intended and hopefully preventative to a downfall. Criticism is negative, accusatory, and a hindsight opinion.
I know we all have opinions and there is nothing wrong with that. When they become harsh and judgmental, maybe we should stop and take a look at our heart. Not everything we think should come out of our mouths.
