Sometimes, I feel that Samoans are the worse critics around,
which is fine, but most of the time, I am sad that for many, that is it,
Just criticize but not prepared to give ideas, help and provide constructive criticism.
Example: A group are asked to translate a document, NOBODY does it.
5 weeks ago, I saw the deadline looming and offered to do it.
I sent it to the group and asked everyone to read through and please change/delete/improve.
Only 2 people did it. Thank you!
Nekk minut, it goes beyond our small group and suddenly, EVERYONE is a professor of the Samoan language and questioning the terms and structure and so forth.
And in my head I am thinking, I should have inserted this as a final line:
"Ga fai aku lava kou ufa e fa'aliliu le pepa ae le faamaga mai se isi ae o lea ua kou fia Falealili fua ma fia aia mai i luma o kagaka? ....Aikakaaaaae"
Have a wonderful week everyone and surround yourselves with people who challenge you, inspire you, and not those who just criticize criticize and criticize.
