It’s the nature of your conditioning to have opinions. Your unique interpretation of each and every past experience causes you to see and respond to life just the way you do. If you had experienced life exactly the way someone else did, you would be just like them. Acknowledging to yourself that you don’t like something is one thing, but spending time criticizing it lowers your precious energy. Your conditioning and your ego are the same thing, and neither are the essential you. The real you is beneath that just loving everything. Replace the urge to criticize with acceptance to experience the real you.
