These eyes are the ones that I don't seem to be able to look at myself well with.

I have blinders that seem to prevent me from being overly critical of myself in various situations.
For example, I am critical of students who often ask for a fifth or sixth chance to turn in a missing assignment, or who wait until just before the end of the term to turn in work that was due weeks ago. I often procrastinate, or want people close to me to trust me to do something that I have been putting off and am now trying to do.
Why am I critical of the kids for doing it, but not of myself taking similar action.
My eyes have blinders.
I don't always show that I care a lot about the people I love, but then am critical of people I see on television who clearly don't show their love for people.
There are so many examples.
I really need to work on my vision.
Carrots and lycopene are not going to help me. I just need to take a step back and look at my actions with a more critical eye.
