Reaction for a feedback

If someone gives a constructive feedback, we accept that. What about a negative feedback? How do we react to it? what would be your action? Yesterday, i received one and i overreacted to that :).  I always thought i am open to feedback. But, i am not. Hmm, I can accept only positive and constructive feedback but not the one bundled with harsh words.

I always do a self interrogation before i go to sleep. I asked the following questions 1) Why did i overreact 2) Why am i  not able to accept criticism 3) Am i sensitive . Well i got the answers after few minutes. In my perspective, without criticism there is no self improvement. If you think that you have received the right feedback then accept ; it doesn’t matter whether you have received it in a rude or polite way. If you realize that you got useless feedback of course you know what to do; either ignore or say with an attitude “hey, you are wrong”.  If we ponder much about  negative words it generates negative energy which might make you stress, lessen your self esteem or you might get a bad impression about the person who commented you.

Bottom line, We live in a world filled with cynics. we can’t anticipate diplomatic words from everyone. If you feel the feedback is right , Embrace the message or ignore and move on. We always have choices. It’s up to us what we choose. Now, I can take negative comments and i will not over react :).
