Always scrutinize your own shortcomings

Always scrutinize your own shortcomings. Ignore the faults of other people. Keep the attitude: "Whether they are pure or impure, It is none of my business!" Be your own teacher; keep a strict check on yourself. That is sufficient!

--Tulku Orgyen Rinpoche, from: The Tibetan Buddhism Pocket Reader, by Reginald A. Ray, Shambhala Publications

Perfect! and stop thinking you must allow yourself to indulge your shortcomings to protect you from the wounds inflicted by others.
Congrats on an intelligent, inspirational site.
