Dealing with unwanted criticism is hard.
It’s painful in the moment because the attack feels personal, and it often is. After the fact it tends to fester and gnaw at us.
It would be great to believe that we are able to see past the criticism and understand the motivation of the person making it. But it can and does hurt.
And if we aren’t willing to deal with that hurt, it will get worse.
Even if you haven’t been criticized lately I would encourage you to spend some time with this audio because, if you are like me, there is a piece of criticism that you are still carrying with you.
