I read an on-line article recently that quoted a woman saying something like “I used to be sensitive to criticism but later realized it was just information.” While the quote isn’t verbatim, I think it’s prophetic. Words, images and energy are continually floating among us. What we choose to do with these words, images and energy is our choice.
There are definitely certain people who provide feedback that I’m overly sensitive toward – for various reasons. If I remind myself that their opinion is just information and that I have a choice with how to handle it; then their words are no longer filled with animosity, they are just words.
What are your thoughts on being sensitive to criticism?
