The news is filled with stories about the difficult times around us. Life is even harder if we are constantly barraged with criticism, whether from a family member, co-worker, or spouse. Relationship expert Matt Townsend believes that we are becoming more apt to look for what is wrong about people and the world than what is right or healthy. We need to change this mindset and learn how to quit nitpicking the people close to us. When we do this, we find more hope and peace in ourselves and in the world around us.
