Growing from Criticism

Growing from Criticism

My default response to criticism is to get defensive. But I’m thinking I’m old enough and (at my age I should be) mature enough to try and handle criticism more adult-ly.

So here is a made-up affirmation that I scheduled into my google calendar so it pops up once a week.
And you know what happened yesterday?
Yesterday I got criticized, and I curled up into my regular defensive ball, but then I remembered this affirmation, and I managed to do what it says to do.
I thought: What is the kernel of truth hiding within this criticism? And when I located that kernel I took it into my heart.
One point for Chana Jenny!
