Handle with care!!!!!

How are you at receiving criticism? Do you prefer that others treat you with kid gloves, or go for brutal honesty?

I am a person with a fragile heart, I can’t digest criticism very easily that too a rude one. This is because whatever I do, I try to do it with my full potential especially if it is a work assigned by someone else. It’s not that I don’t accept my mistakes, I am always ready to accept criticism for my genuine mistakes but it should not be a brutal assassination of my work, behaviour or character.

Till now I have never been shouted at for anything be it my studies, behaviour, grades or any such thing. If it ever happened I could never bear the brunt and tears would start flowing down my cheeks. Let me tell you about one such incident.

Once my father in law said something to me in a not really rude but in a harsh tone, that time I listened and controlled my emotions because I am not a person who will give answers to my elders but later on I kept on crying. Hubby and MIL asked the reason and consoled me. It was not a big deal but still I couldn’t control my emotions. Later on even FIL clarified that he was angry on some other thing but unfortunately I had to bear his wrath.

People think I am a strong person who will not cry even on big issues but at heart I am very fragile who will cry even on petty issues.

So that’s me showcasing a strong personality outside which is very fragile at heart.

  1. Being in the corporate world for a decade now, I can handle criticism well. I am extremely sensitive and emotional too but depends who is criticizing me..Nice post.


  2. I am a sensitive person too! I am an ex introvert and now a forced ambivert. So, just like you, I am good at expressing through writing than that of words… With the support of my family and teachers, I do manage with the outsiders but still any harsh words from loved ones makes me break down…

    Ah! Your post is such a relief to me! Gaining some confidence that I am not alone! TC! Keep smiling πŸ™‚
