      I had to share!

      Most people can't handle criticism well. In fact, if you criticize someone on a topic, some of the most common reactions from that person will be:

      • to defend strongly and say that you are wrong in criticizing them
      • to attack you for one of your related or unrelated fault
      • to ignore and not bother
      • to question your authority and qualification to criticize

      If this happens consistently, one effect of this is may be that you won't criticize the person again.  What might very well happen is that you might marginalize the person.  

      In other words, you may write off the person from your life as one of the "not so important" things in life.

      The same rule applies to you when someone criticizes you. While it's easy to say "handle criticism with grace" it's hard to follow. Next time when someone criticizes you for something, try focusing on the message rather than the messenger. It may change the way you look at things.
