“To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.”
I’m not a huge fan of criticism, and by that I mean I want to run away and bury my head in the sand. And this is possible when you don’t really know the person critising you, but when they are someone you love and care about it’s another thing all together. I’m never sure how to respond to criticism. I tend to get rather defensive or just shut down completely. Turns out that I’m getting rather sensitive in my old age. Who knew?
