I think this quote makes a really good point. Of course some people’s criticism is quite truthful and important to listen to, but it’s good to try and look deeper into a person’s motives.
Are their words coming from a place of kindness and wanting to help? Or are they just expressing the negativity of their own life, their own negative story? We all know people like the 2nd one at one time or another and the less you listen to them the better off you’ll be. Don’t let them get you down :).
