| Criticism 1

Most of us are acutely and reactively sensitive to criticism of what we think to be our identity (our ego) even though many of us profess to be able to listen to, accept, and learn from criticism. However when criticism spontaneously occurs, we invariably respond with emotions of hurt, and may attack and criticise our critic.
We need to ask ourselves whenever giving or receiving criticism; does criticism make change; does it bear fruit, or does it simply make the criticised sense their own inadequacy, hurt and anger, and the critic more self-righteous?
