Wow! It’s not even noon and I ‘ve been yelled at, told I was loved, reminded I am no good because only the good die young, and been called trouble. Some people would be upset by this. I am celebrating it. Why because I have been heard. I am not invisible. Perhaps I am irritating, but now invisible.
I remember a discussion with my mom about people other than her criticizing me. It was so important to me that I wrote down what she said. Now I have it framed with a great picture to keep me in check.
1. Consider the source. If the criticism come from someone who truly loves you it matters. If the criticism comes from someone who knows you, it still matters. If the criticism comes from a stranger and it makes good sense to you, it matters. If a criticism comes from a stranger and seem invalid, simply let it go.
2. If it is a criticism that matters fix it and move forward.
I find this a very practical and loving way to live.
