People who criticize are not teaching, they are exercising their power over you.
There is no such thing as constructive criticism. That just gives license to have at you, again, to exercise power and control.
If a teacher taught his/her students by criticizing them when they were wrong, they would stop learning.
Criticism is never acceptable either to give or receive, but we’re in a world where it is easy to do and to do it impulsively.
People respond to help, information, encouragement.
Criticism does not have one advantage.
Let no person criticize you and if it’s your boss or someone you can’t repel, label it as criticism in your own mind if you have to hear it.
Then erase it from your mind and get to a better place.
