When you are excited to share a new idea or inspiration and you turn to that friend who inevitably says ‘Yeah, good luck with that, it’s never going to happen.’ How does that feel compared to when you share with someone who says ‘I’m excited for you, tell me more…’?
Thank your critics and move on
Choose to align yourself with people who are like-minded in their search for change or inspiration. Give those who find fault a silent thank you and move on. Your life will be simplified when you don’t have to defend yourself to anyone, and when you receive support rather than criticism. Constructive feedback is healthy, persistent negativity is not.
