Criticism and rejection, as painful as they may be, can lead to learning new ways of being in relationship with others and ourselves. Criticism can actually provide us with crucial feedback and opportunities for introspection, self-evaluation, and reassessment. Discerning what criticism is worth listening to—and what to let pass us by—is a skill that is essential to self-growth and success. And learning how to give criticism to others in a constructive way is one of the most useful skills we can develop to become a productive collaborator and community member. Our fear of criticism and rejection can keep us from making meaningful social connections and expanding our capabilities; leaning into self-compassion and self-worth can keep us grounded and growing.
