A participant in the Come Alive and Do the Thing! group came up with a terrific term for insights that people offer you (of that you offer yourself) that are wrapped in the message that there is something wrong with you. She calls them weaponized insights.

Insights point toward truth. Anything that suggests that there is something wrong with you or that you are not wholly valuable just as you are is a weapon, not an insight.
