Don’t take this the wrong way but…

We’ve all heard that line before. How you take what comes after it is up to you.

If it’s criticism you could let it pull the rug out from underneath you. You could allow it to completely deflate you and leave you feeling helpless, useless and depressed. You could let it ruin your life and haunt you forever.

Or you could listen, consider and then accept or reject. If it’s reasonable criticism then why not let it help you become better?

But if it’s unreasonable criticism then let it go. Why hold on to? Why let it affect you? It’s only the small minded thinking of some idiot.

Other people’s words can’t change you, unless you let them.

Don’t take this the wrong way but…how you react to them is your choice and within your control.
