I kind of laugh at this #MondayMotivation quote from famous philosopher Aristotle but it really is an important thought to remember.
All of us have faced or will face criticism at some point in our lives. It could be on our jobs or with our side hustles, or maybe even when it comes to our personal lives and how we conduct ourselves. But there’s no escaping it. The only way to do that is to just sit in a corner somewhere and do and be absolutely nothing. And we aren’t made to just do nothing.
Criticism is a part of the game, no matter what you try your hand at. Sometimes you’ll face people who genuinely have your best interests at heart. Other times, you’ll hear critics who just love to be mean for likes and laughs, especially on social media. I’m all for criticism when it’s actually constructive and can help me be a better writer and overall person. Anything else goes in one ear and out the other.
