First thing I do is bite back my response. Then I try to think about what the person is saying to me. Then I try to think of other things other people might have said to me in the past that might to relate. Followed by some searching for myself of the truth. But holy crap is it hard.
And it looks like I’m going to possibly be moving into a management position at work, which means I really, really need to be able to absorb criticism without taking things personally, and work on the things that need to be made better.
