Don’t let criticism break you, let it make you. And when told to you in a rough form, let them know. Speak up after they have expressed what they are saying. Like you want to be heard, hear. Like you want to be spoken to, speak.
Take what you must from the moment and look at it as an opportunity to add something to your self that will make you stronger and better.
Also, acknowledged that not all criticism is meant for you. This doesn’t mean that you are to ignore the person, but if you know deep down in your instinctual persona that they have no idea what they are saying. Let them speak. You never know, their words you may need someday.
Accept Criticism, just not the foul attitudes that come with it.
Defend you, be you. Learn to listen to you.
