Handling Criticism

Criticism is the judgement of the merits and faults of the work or actions of an individual or group by another (Definition). Criticism surrounds us everywhere we go and we can not get away from it.  However, it is how you handle criticism that determines how you are as a person.  No one wants another person to criticize our work or who we are as individuals. While this may be true, accepting criticism is a good thing.  Put it in this perspective; if someone told you that your work was not great because it was missing something, find out what you can add.  Take it as constructive criticism instead of the negative aspect of it.  Some people will tell you so you can better your craft or they might just be rude.  It really doesn't matter a person's intentions on how they may criticize what you do. Always take it in a positive matter and try to better it.  It isn't a bad thing to go back to something and fix a few things up.  Whether it be a paper you just finished writing that toke you two days to write and someone told you that you should be a bit more descriptive.  Take that into consideration and make it better.  Learning how to take criticism in a positive form is an important quality that many people do not hold.  You always want to be a few steps ahead of everyone and this is a good way to start. Understand other peoples aspects on things and this may help you better understand their point of view. Handle criticism in the best way possible because it may help you in the long run.
