What difference will it make if I choose not to find fault?
Blaming others is a coward’s way of dealing with an issue or a problem. It’s better if we try to solve a problem or at least be non-judgmental when someone else is doing the work. We all make judgments on others when in fact judgment calls should only be made on ideas, plans or decisions, never on the person.
So, what can I do to make a difference in this regard?
I can at least say “thank you” for effort and refrain from fault finding. I can look to help someone in need.
Finding fault will get me nowhere except in a deep rut of self-pity, thinking I’m wronged by the actions of others or that others are not fulfilling my pre-conceived ideas of who they are and what they should be doing. Finding fault is an easy way out by blaming someone other than myself for consequences.

From the St. Francis of Assisi JPIC Committee
Lord, help me to be a builder-upper
rather than a tearer-downer.
Keep me positive rather than negative.
Help me to help others.
Help me to make peace.
