no. if that is the truth, i will accept that of course. i hope that when my shortcoming is pointed out, that would be done in private and not in front of all other people. i can take criticisms, i use them to build my confidence more and to work harder... but i guess if a friend tells me about my mistakes with the intention of letting me down and not to help me, that would make me really sad and will be really hurt cause i would never do something like that to a friend...

It depends on the manner of saying it. I don't actually gets angry. But I get hurt. Especially if it is told in a very annoying manner. But I accept it and always trying my best to change.

I was getting little annoyed at time, before years when some one pointed out my shortcomings! Now it is ok to me because I learned that these are the things one has to learn to deal and remove for ever!

i felt bad all the time when my husband complained, criticised or pointed out my shortcomings. it seems to me that he always looked for some mistakes that i made. its not my nature to criticise people because i'm telling myself that nobodys perfect, we all make mistakes.

I can easily take criticisms when it comes from my family and friends but I am not good in handling those that are from people that doesn't know me at all. About pointing out my shortcomings, I may accept it if I really caused inconvenience to lots of people or have hurt their feelings badly. But if I am aware of it and gave my sincere apology, then I will feel bad if someone will keep on pointing out my shortcomings.

There's a diference between constructive and destructive critisicm. Both people should know the difference and use the better of the two. Constructive critisicm should be taken politely as a reminder of where you need to improve.
