ho, No one likes criticism. Some people criticize us because they are jealous. But it is not always so. Some people show us the negative side of the thing and we should accept it and try to improve us. It is said that the critics house should be near to our house. Sometimes we get good advice from the critics.

It depends on the criticism being thrown at me , jricky. If it seemed that it's just to discredit me when in fact, i am doing okay, then definitely i would feel bad about it and point it out to you. But, if the criticism is a constructive one, i would gladly take it and do what i have to do to improve.

I think it depends on who is giving me the criticisms. I can sense if the person is being objectively critical or if she is being mean or nasty. If the person is criticizing me or my work and I can sense that she just wants me to turn in a better one, I will definitely be all ears and make sure to do better next time. I will take it with the intention of improving myself. If I can sense that she is doing it out of spite or envy, then I don;t have to hear about it. I will remove myself from her presence, or ask her to leave mine as the case may be. Also, if the person criticizing me is more knowledgeable than I am or is someone who is an expert in what she is talking about then I am all ears. I will not take it personally. But if that person doesn't really know a thing or two about what she's talking about, I will just stop listening to her. I will not engage in any verbal spar, as it is not worth my while to give in to someone talking about something that they don't even know.

Initially, I feel bad about criticism but later on after thinking things thoroughly, I often find that it makes me a better person. However, this depends upon the kind of criticism if it is constructive or damaging. Many people are good at providing criticisms without considering their own selves whether they also need to change. There are also instances when criticisms make me feel awful. I tend to think it over and over if I have a really done an awful mess of my life. It can disturbing to one's peace of mind.
