It’s important to listen to (constructive) criticism. There are good people in our lives, who want us to grow and can give effective criticism to move us forward.
There are also people who will just criticise for the sake of it – keyboard warriors, people who are jealous of you, people who seem to enjoy tearing others down and those who are just very angry and project their anger onto others.
We need to decide which criticism to listen to: the one that stops us from our ‘doing’ or the one that helps us grow?
It’s difficult because sometimes, the former is a lot louder and harder to ignore, especially when it’s directed at what we love and are passionate about.
How do you respond to criticism?
Do you have people in your life who can criticise you constructively?
