We, as a collective people, seem to have obtained such a great wealth of knowledge and experience that we point at this or that (and often everything) with an unwavering stance of disdain. All too often for some.
If you’ve read somewhere that controversy sells, consider the inventory you’re going to market with … and write about that (or the benefits thereof). If you’re blogging (or tweeting, etc) to build your business, avoid the pointing of fingers demanding perfection.
And realize that such criticism could be manifest of an expectation you’ve placed upon yourself.
Ay, there’s the rub.
For while the fear of criticism from others is possibly the most damaging fear, it is our own desire for perfection that can prove deadly.
Recognize criticism from others as learning opportunities.
Redefine your criticism for others by finding the positives.
Realize that perfection, while honorable, is impossible.
“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.” ~Confucius
