Encourage, Don't criticize

Therefore encourage one another and edify one another. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

We can improve our relationships with others if we become encouragers instead of critics. It is the greater person who does the right  thing; Christ's righteousness dwells in us to help us to do what is right. You are great in God's eyes when you choose to do right and bless others. 
No matter how rough your day is today, speak words that uplift and encourage those around you. Remember my previous blog post about life and death being in the power in the tongue? Encourage others if you notice them doing a good job, not just those you work with, but people wherever you go (store clerks, workers,etc,) Say something like, "I appreciate the extra the effort you are making to do your job." You can change your life and impact someone else's by choosing to speak positive words.
