Criticism…

Why is accepting good or bad criticism so difficult?  Criticism is the practice of judging the merits and faults of something or someone in an intelligible (or articulate) way.

I’ve learned, it hurts the most when it’s those closest to you criticizing your work.  You expect their words to be kind and encouraging and sometimes it’s the opposite.  It’s never easy to hear but it’s their opinion and you have to respect it.  Lets be honest, no one likes to hear:  “It was great but…” , “I liked it, except it should-be written…” ,  “I didn’t like the ending but it was…”  — Well you get the idea. – HA!  The words, but and except are like nails on a chalk board at times.  Eeekkkk ;(

“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.”

I will not be discouraged and allow anyone to weigh me down.  I will learn from every experience, every story I write, and every criticism good or bad.  There is always something to learn.

Thank you!

Peace & Love xox

  1. I hope the criticism you received was constructive and helpful. Otherwise, don’t let it become an obstacle. The greatest authors have received negative criticism at some point. What made them great is how they bounced back! Keep up the writing. The practice will help you improve.
