Look for criticism to make your case better. Critics are your best assistants on the way to perfection. But remember, the main thing is not a critic, but beauty and perfection. We serve beauty, not idols.
The critic must love what he criticizes. Beats - it means love. The critic has to beat what he likes to make him better. Not to criticize, not out of love, criticism, devoid of love, is a lie and a fake.
Criticism is white noise. Criticism is like radio interference and distortion in gravitational fields. If there is not even criticism, it says that the mass of the object is zero and there is nothing in front of us.
Destructive criticism is also love. Destroying excess, critic frees up space for the desired. The critic is the one who clears the field of weeds, leaving room for useful. By destroying the ugly, the critic allows the master to create. The sower sows, the Reaper reaps.
Criticism should be treated as horoscopes and mystical omens, that is, separating the grain from the chaff, to use useful, and useless to ignore as unpleasant, but inevitable and absolutely necessary evil.
In Zen Buddhism it is believed that the enlightened should not react and look back at the shout. Metaphorically, it means to ignore criticism, temptations, and any attempts to distract you from the true path.
To protect yourself from criticism, use the practice of meditation. These practices are many, the principle is simple, switch and clear your head of unnecessary emotions. For example: deep breathing, breath retention, muscle tension, "point concentration", "dispersal", "crab meditation", "rubber band", pain, admiration meditation, etc.
Criticism that cannot be used constructively for the good of the cause automatically turns into destructive criticism. In fact, there are only three options. Or you used criticism to create and that's good. All that creates not destroys. And the third option is total disregard.
It is very important to be able to respond correctly to criticism. After all, if you can not get creative benefit from criticism, it will automatically begin to destroy you. The more intelligent a person is, the greater their ability to benefit, everyone else needs to learn to be non-attracted and ignored.
Understand correctly, hatred and dislike of criticism is also attention, which means that it is love and creation... The prefix "not", in this case, will make the process of love destructively creative.
