constructive vs. destructive

The difference between “critical” and “cynical” is an incredibly important one. One seeks to improve, the other simply breeds contempt. Criticism can be very helpful. But no matter how intelligent or articulately presented, cynicism never is. Contempt doesn’t have to be presented overtly for it to create a toxic environment or poison relationships.

When sharing your ideas with government, are you being critical or cynical?
