I can handle it if it is done appropriately. For example don't slam me or embarrass me in front of fellow co-workers or friends. Just tell me in private nice and in a caring way.

I'm open to criticisms. People just have to do it in a respectful way. I'd appreciate honest feedback so I can improve on myself.

Yes. I actually ask for constructive criticism. I don't take it against anyone. They mean well. It will help me in the future anyway.

Host
I'm good with it. I just want an honest and helpful criticism from people. No need to sugarcoat it.

Host
Sometimes I get sensitive and I get hurt easily. So, I don't really ask much.

Host
If I can ask for it, then it's ok to tell me. But if I don't ask, don't give me any criticism. I'm stubborn like that.
2 y
Host
Yes. Just give it to me straight. Better that way.

I'd appreciate honesty from family, friends and even with people I work with. I do need to check my behavior sometimes specially when I get stressed. They tell me when I get overbearing.

Yeah. Some people give unsolicited advice and it's not cool. They just wanna get in your business and bring you down.

I agree. I'd rather ask people I trust for criticisms. That way I know it is sincere and they mean well.

I'm okay with it. I just want people to say it to my face than talk behind my back about my faults.
2 y
Host
Yes. I need to get feedback from people once in a while. People will always criticize you anyway so just gotta be open about it.
2 y
Host
Most of the time yes. I just feel bad when they say it in a spiteful way. My attitude needs some adjustment sometimes. I know I can be bratty and maybe I deserve it.

Host
You're immature if you can't handle criticism. People will always say stuff about you and you just need to be strong and get over it everytime.
2 y
Host
Yup. I'm good with criticisms. I take it with a grain of salt and just change for the better.
2 y
Host
Definitely. I also give them criticisms once in a while. I acknowledge their good points as well.
2 y
Host
Yeah, friends do it all the time. It's their job to tell you things you don't want to hear.

True. No use pointing out just the negatives. The positive feedback helps as well.

Eventually in your life you will be censured, maybe professionally. In some cases it will be hard to acknowledge however that all relies on upon your response.

I'm cool with criticisms. People I work with, family and friends know I'm open to it. I just take note of everything and try to change.
