Being criticised is part of life. If we’re going to be happy, we’d better learn to cope with hearing criticism, and even welcoming it.
There are good reasons not to share how we feel. But, if we learn to do so, we can be surprised by the relief it can bring.
When coping with rejection, people vary in their resilience. But we can all learn to manage ourselves to be aware of our feelings, to be honest but discreet, and to move on if need be.
