You have to try and guess what my word is from the clues.

My first part is a negative relative
My second part is quite critical but also this
The third part is the foundations of something
The fourth part is what the reason is
The fifth part is all around us, it is what we breathe
The final part is nearly realisation

As per usal, I will post hints if needed
