“To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.” ~Elbert Hubbard
It’s easy enough to get people to criticize you, just try something, say something, or be something. Most are at home criticizing what others do and say without offering their own opinions or actions. That’s why it’s silly to worry about getting criticized. What you should really worry about is not being criticized, because that means you’re not putting enough of yourself out there to face the criticism. Over time you’ll be able to brush off criticism that has no merit, and learn from the criticism which can help you grow. It’s hard at first, because your feelings might get hurt from the initial onslaught, but it does get easier.
