541 - How to Deal With Criticism Tiny Leaps, Big Changes

    • Mental Health

In this episode, we look at how to deal with criticism from your loved ones. 

Why We Take Things Personally:


We depend on others for security and needs
When others do something that feel threatening to our security we can take it personal
This can impact our mental health by adding anxiety, sadness or resentful feelings

How to not take it personal:


Gain some perspective - can you see things from their point of view? can you ask clarifying questions?
Take some space to work though how you feel about the situation and to gain some clarity
Refocus on yourself, stay busy with your own needs
Dont "Climb Down" and be negative in response.
