Gratitude Day 25 - Constructive Criticism

Criticism, a razors edge.

It's funny to think that any criticism could be good. But it depends.   

If you look up types of criticism, you will find a whole list of them.

But the way I look at it, there are really only two types...

The type that builds you up, or the type that tears you down.

I have come to appreciate constructive feedback over the years, for one's honest. 

I'm the type of person that can get lost in my own head, in my own world. Getting feedback from someone that is "building up", is like getting to see a snap shot of myself. Kind of like taking step back and looking around.

I appreciate the truth, because the truth is going to help me grow as a person.

I may not always like it right when I hear it, but that is usually pretty short lived. Generally if my ego wants to jump up and defend my position, I am probably needing a reality check. (I will remember to keep that in mind!)

I am grateful for honest constructive criticism, and to continually build myself into a better me at whatever I am doing.
