Can you peacefully accept criticism from others? Or you just get angry?

I discover that I can't peacefully accept criticism from others, even if I know some of it is true. I don't know why and I don't want to be like this. I want to be reasonable and generous indeed. It is just sometimes when hearing the harsh words I can't control my temper. Do any of you out there have the same experience? Do I have a problem? How to do mental adjustment?

it all depend how they go about it, if they are respectful about it then i am good. but like my spelling isnt good and if someone would say what wrong with you are you stuipd its suppose to be break not brake. then i get upset. but if they were like no you got them mix up, it's suppose to be. so it depend how they do it

I'm sure most of us can't peacefully listent to others criticizing you. I can't take it - i immediately get pissed off and show it on my face that "i did not like it". I think one should be a saint or a highly proefssional person who can take in riticism with utmost patience. However, i can take criticism if i was informed abotuthe onslaught in advance. I don't think you have any problem - you are simply being normal. But try to be "professional" and grow up from your silly ego. All the best -

it happens to me sometimes when they say harsh words that aren't even necessary. hearing criticisms is a way where you can improve those things that they are criticizing; but sometimes people can be just a**hol*s and say mindless things . getting angry after being criticized is okay. i bet it happens to a lot of people. what you can do is filter those criticisms. forget empty criticisms and focus on the criticisms that you think is true and use your anger to do something about it. :)
