Handle With Care
How are you at receiving criticism? Do you prefer that others treat you with kid gloves, or go for brutal honesty?
I can handle criticism.From everyone,with open ears and heart.Especially stranger’s criticism.
I always have this thought that when someone pointes out my faults , it has to be for the better.It just opens up your eyes and allows you to correct things.It really is crucial for personal improvement.
It wasn’t always that way , but this is one of the virtues of growing older: Taking criticism less personally.This is how you take criticism without getting self-conscious and defensive.
Unfortunately i can’t take my father’s criticism . I take it very personal ,and can’t hold myself from being defensive most of the time.
I guess i always wanted him to see me as the ‘perfect daughter’ ,not tell me the list of my flaws. Even if deep down me i know i am far from being perfect (and nobody is) but it did matter to keep that beautiful image.My father’s criticism is what made me insecure.
Things have changed now, i don’t know if he ends up giving up on criticism or me guetting more aware of my weaknesses , but it was less of it and more of taking responsability .
