The truth is… everyone is going to criticize you.
One simple word… is going to hurt you.
Nobody likes being criticized. But how you handle it makes all the difference. Everybody isn’t your friend.
But if you can learn to take it in stride, with some genuine reflection on how you can use it as a basis for improvement, you can come to realize that criticism can actually be a gift .
According to Dale Carnegie , “Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”
Strange, isn’t it?
You know yourself better than anyone else yet you crumble at the words of someone who hasn’t even lived a second of your life. The world is filled as if they know you. It’s never fun to be on the receiving end of criticism, but these thoughts can help you learn to deal with it more effectively.
It is important to understand that what you believe you can do is often based on limitations from your past, mistake, and is not based on what you’re actually and currently capable of doing.
You’re capable of much more than you have even given yourself an opportunity to find out and explore you inner gift. Give yourself a chance to see your full potential and to become aware of how powerful, strong and talented you really are by trying new things and taking creative risks.
A wise person once told me… Let them judge you. Let them misunderstand you. Their opinions aren’t your problems. You have the power to change anything, because you are the one who chooses your thoughts and you are the one who feels your feelings.
A mistake which makes you humble is better than an achievement that makes you arrogant. You were born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection.
Some people will never value what you bring to the table until they see you in action at another table. You can be courageous and confident, even when you are scared and full of doubt. In every problem, you can always learn to accept it, adapt it, change it or leave it. It’s up to you how you handle the situation.
Embrace yourself, both when you feel confident and vulnerable. Embrace those criticism and imperfections because it will help you grow. You can’t live your life for other people. Do what’s right for you!
Sometimes, lack of communication ruins everything because instead of knowing how other person is feeling, we just assume. We criticized.
I hope this message will help you move forward and focus on the positive. Thank you for your time and I wish everyone is having a wonderful weekends!
Love lots, April Mae 🙂
