Facing Criticism -by Tamra Brathwaite
Are you fed-up of people making you feel inferior based on their point of view on what you do, what you say or think, and who you are? Those comments that make you want to blow up and burst into a blazing ball of fire to devour whatever stands in your way. The moments when you feel like you deserve the right to be left alone and nobody's opinion really matters. I can imagine!
You are engulfed by a flood of criticism, "the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes." Nobody never really wants to be "wrong". Everyone hopes to be "right". But you know, we live in an imperfect world filled with imperfect beings, and therefore, the thoughts of others may truly matter. That is ONLY when the criticism is intended to improve the outcome of the situation or the person being criticized. A lot of us find it hard to accept criticism and most often think that it will bring us down than rather build us up. But there is a beautiful flip side of criticism which not too many of us are aware of. If we take the time to understand the concept of constructive criticism I think we will appreciate it better. But another major problem too is probably not that we don't believe in criticism, but the mere fact that many of us don't know how to deal with it.
Let me assure that when you face criticism it may bring you long way ahead of others who don't.
