Understand that criticisms are often times exaggerated. Manifestations of how an individual is feeling—often times about themselves—in a moment. Think carefully about all feedback you receive before letting it in. Consider if what has been said to you is supported by facts? Is it fair? Does the size and shape and volume of the critique match the circumstance? Because a good critique should give you as much feedback about your strengths as your weaknesses. If you don’t feel that sense of balance while being criticized then you may want to consider if what’s being said is valid before reacting.

Critiques, like advice, are free and you are free to discard them if they don’t fit. No explanation needed.
