Dealing with Criticism

[wpdevart_like_box profile_id=”https://www.facebook.com/thelifeofree/” connections=”show” width=”300″ height=”550″ header=”small” cover_photo=”show” locale=”en_US”]I want to talk about dealing with criticism. If it is constructed criticism, then it is all good.  But what happens if it is destructive criticism? It is hard to do deal with destructive criticism. I decided to talk about this subject since I know that everyone has dealt with situation before. I usually chump it up, and ignore it. This is not a good because I would think about it afterwards. I know that some people who would confront the person. They would argue, and sometimes fight. This is not good because someone could get seriously injured. There is no clear way to approach a situation like this, but I am going to do some research to get some ideas on how to deal with destructive criticism. We need to deal with these situations, so that we can be stress free and carefree.

I found some information on WikiHow.com. What I found is that to not let this comment break your confidence. We are not perfect. It might be some truth to it, so try to get something positive out of it. Try not to take it personally, and pick your battles. If this is a work place or business place, try to defuse the problem. Words cannot hurt you. Take a minute and think about what was said. Take some deep breaths, and talk to the person at another time when both of you have cool down. I also found some other information on Your Relationship Matters.com. They wrote “Endless rumination (negative thinking) won’t help either. Instead it’ll just undermine your self-esteem and waste your precious energy.” So do not let someone’s opinion ruin your whole day. Do not beat yourself up, and do not let this upset you. So keep doing what you doing, and do not let anything stop you. Again, we are human, and the person who is talking may have problems too. You might have crossed this person’s path to help them. Never know.
