3 Ways to Accept Criticism

Accepting criticism about yourself or your project is difficult. However, in life, we often find ourselves in situations that we can\’t get through despite our best efforts. Maybe it is because we can\’t always predict everything, or maybe it is because our bosses can only criticize us. But how do we do our best in every situation and not walk away as a loser?

Know where the truth lies
Even if it feels like the whole world is against you, the truth may be somewhere else. Your boss or colleagues probably have no desire to hurt you at all. Your boss and colleagues know that you don\’t like criticism and will try not to criticize you if they can.
Criticism does not have to mean anything bad. You can be sure that the person criticizing you is trying to help you. Try to see the whole situation through his eyes. It is always better to accept criticism as help rather than as unjustified.
Think about the future
Being criticized by someone is not forever. How can you learn from the situation you are in? Do you realize that you have done something that deserves to be criticized? Try not to let that happen next time. You did the right thing, but the criticism always comes from the same place. Some people have problems themselves and criticize others out of jealousy or habit. It is better to avoid such people or not take their opinions seriously.

Admit that you made a mistake
It doesn\’t matter what really happened. Admitting your mistake instead of blaming your colleague will not change anything. It is always better to back down than to sue. Of course, there is always the danger that others will use you as a scapegoat. Thus, if you are already taking responsibility, it is important to communicate with everyone. Let your colleagues know that you are being criticized and that you will not take this any further. By doing so, your colleagues will respect you more and will not take advantage of your position.
