As i travelled from childhood to adulthood ,the twenties ,thirties,forties i learned to mask my emotions and be inscrutable for display sometimes gives unforeseen reactions from others. People mostly expect appreciation .Even constructive criticism given with the intention of positive guidance agitates and creates disharmony.

Whenever my daughter would come to me with her daily classroom antics and episodes it would be merely to get a silent approval or praise .She would search my face for my emotional reactions to continue ,stop or distort the remainning of her narration as per my reaction or signs of disapproval.

With passing years i learnt that even the mature adults are uncomfortable with positive criticism .

Guess its only humane to be emotional but important to not react negatively . Acceptance of positive criticism requires not only maturity but understanding .

Be Unscrutable !
