4 letter word the fear, looks thin, but it holds a whole feeling. We all have different fears, regardless of how much a person looks stronger he/she has something or the other he/she is going to fear, and most of the time we are not comfortable sharing it with people. We never really say our views loudly sometimes-we stop ourselves from being insulted, we fear being judged, we fear that people will laugh at us and make our views funny.
Everyone is afraid of being punished, criticised or made fun of, but the only difference is that it is not seen by certain people and some are easily taken away by the situation. People will judge, they will find something or another to condemn you, and at the end of the day everyone will disagree no matter what you decide.
The truth is that you or me are not going to like every person. But if you want to make something important in this world, creating your own winning strategy to deal with criticism is necessary. Since it is going to happen. For positive growth, some criticism may involve valuable interactions, and quite a bit of it won’t.
If you’re sitting in a 10-person space, it’s not important for everyone to approve your views and judgement, and if someone criticises you that it doesn’t necessarily mean that they hate you or want to see you down, it may just be that the way things are looked through the lens of that person is different from yours. Studies show that we are four times more likely to recall constructive reviews than to compliment even happy individuals, and that poor feedback is more carefully interpreted than good. Think about what’s successful in being questioned, find the piece of truth in it and let it inspire better expectations.
It’s all right if people trust me to laugh at your views that will help you, push you to become even better… some day or the other, those people will appreciate you, but for that because of being criticised, you have to concentrate on your goal and not shift your focus.
You’re going to say stupid things… you’re going to make mistakes, but at least by the end of the day you’re not going to be dissatisfied with yourself for not even trying… At least you were trying… you didn’t sit quietly because of your fear.
Surmount the insecurities… Bad experiences will only lead you to learn valuable lessons in life.
