How easy it is to criticise, how difficult it is to bear
Criticism is a word which can be associated with being either terrible or terrific. The word is not new to us but the meanings differ with each new experience.
Some bear criticism with a stone heart and work hard on improving themselves. However, the rest cannot stand while their flaws are being pointed out. Both of them have their own point of view.
It is often demeaning when you have to bear others shouting and screaming at you. The courage it takes to look the person in the eye and improve yourself without feeling sad ,is rarely found. If you have found a mentor who can help you to improve your skills without pulling you down, you are lucky.
It is said perfectionism roots in the fear of being criticised. I agree with the statement as the compulsive need to be appreciated is overpowering and the thought of being anything but perfect is upsetting.
Before you criticise someone younger to you or below your work status, remember that at some point of your life, you were in their shoes and you would have been grateful to have someone on your side.
Criticism has been around forever because it is human tendency to give your opinions on a matter. All I ask of you today is to be aware of your words, know the effect your criticism can have on someone because chances are that they are fighting a battle you are unaware of. If your words are meant for someone’s betterment, don’t frame them in a way that ruins their day.
Be aware of the difference between giving someone constructive criticism and just plainly criticising someone to enforce your views and opinions
I have been lucky enough to not have to put up with much criticism but whoever has been through this experience, I hope your day gets better and you become stronger.
