How to Gracefully Accept Criticism [TJJS:EP259]

How To Gracefully Accept Criticism

how to gracefully accept criticism

SSo, your partner gives you a little nudge that *maybe* you could do something a bit differently and you Totally. Fly. Off. The. Handle. Or maybe your bestie gently suggests that you may want to try to actually DO something about the shit-job you are always complaining about and you completely chew him out. If you have a hard time with feedback (uh-hem, criticism), you are certainly not alone, my friend.

In fact, we are actually wired to defend ourselves if we feel attacked, so OF COURSE your knee-jerk reaction is to spout of reciprocal accusations and cast blame in the opposite direction. Listen, I’m not saying that your partner or your bestie is always in the right, but what I am saying is that it would likely serve you to dig a bit deeper and call yourself out on your shit.

How? I’m so glad you asked. In this week’s episode, I discuss what to look for when experiencing criticism from others, how to know if there is any validity, and what to do if you’ve accidentally made an ass of yourself. Not that I would know anything about that… [she says snidely].

This pod explores:

  • How to know if you actually need to even listen to this criticism or not (And, yes, there are times when you can straight-up ignore the critic)
  • Three tactics you can employ in the moment when you are about to unleash a beast on someone giving you a bit of feedback
  • How to go about cleaning up your mess if you’ve been a bit of a Snarky Snark
  • How to request what you need from the person sharing their feedback/criticism with you
