Whether you like it or not, time will come that you will receive criticism in different forms. It will definitelyhurt at times especially if you’re living in a world of productivity where everything should be close toperfection. Receiving criticism is often times a blow to your self-confidence and self-esteem so it is best tolearn how to handle it before it hinders you or fills you with anger. Here are five effective tips on how tohandle criticism.1. Keep your mind open. Try to understand that criticism is part of your growing life. Everyone receivescriticism regardless of your position in life. Even the president has the whole country ready to criticize him inany turn of events. Keep in mind that not everyone thinks like you or works the way you do. I’m sure youunderstand since you also criticize others when the situation arises. Only this time you might be on thereceiving end. Just keep an open mind and do your best.
2. Take it positively. People criticize you because you probably have done something great or worth noticing.And that thing is still probably a little rough on the edges so people do what they do best during this kind ofscenario, they criticize. It’s easy to criticize than give advice. So the best way to handle this is to take criticismpositively by thinking that it’s their way of wanting to let you know that you still need to improve. C’mon! Weboth know that we can’t please everyone.3. Learn from it. Taking criticism positively is not enough if you’re not doing anything to improve yourself.Of course, criticism won’t go away even if you’re almost perfect but if you’re receiving the same criticismover and over again then I think you have a problem you need to address. Criticism is a like a true friend thattells you what’s wrong, but instead of sugar coating it with a hug, he slaps you silly to wake you up. When youare being criticized, try to learn everything you can so you can improve yourself.
4. Consider the source. Like I mentioned earlier, it’s very easy to criticize, meaning everyone can do it andeveryone will criticize you once you get their attention. The more people who criticize you, the bothered youwill get. When that happens, always consider the source of criticism. For example, let’s say you’re walkingdown the street then a random stranger shouts at you and calls you stupid. Will you take that as criticism andfind a way to be “not stupid’? Of course not! You don’t even know each other! For all we know that person isjust plain crazy. But if criticism came from a loved one or a close friend, then it pays to listen to what theyhave to say because they know you. Get it now? From now on always consider the source.5. Let it go. When all else fails, this one is the simplest yet the hardest thing to do, letting it go. When criticismis too high and it’s already stressing you, discouraging you, and stopping you from doing what you have to do,then just let it go. Criticism should only bother you for a short time which is enough for the whole idea to sinkin and for you to do something about it. Otherwise, if it keeps going and it’s starting to affect you in anunhealthy way, then it’s wise to divert your attention to other things that needs your focus. Give yourself timeto adjust and gather your confidence and once you feel better, get back up and do your thing.
