Did you ever imagine, if there were no opposition in parliament! Would there be any improvement? Would the government be functioning properly? NO! It is quite obvious that opposing gives us more option. Same applies with criticism. As Plutarch quoted: “I do not need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod, my shadows does that much better.” It is clear that to polish a knife one will definitely need a red stone, which is rough. We too need this irony. If there is no mirror we simply cannot recognize the concealed faults we have. Criticism is one such truth revealing mirror, which can be in a variety of friends and haters and people who envy us.
It adds to a quote by Jake Roberts, which reads as: ” Every moment is an experience.” But more often we’re in the midst of pessimists who fetter us. Those stound could be quite depressing. All the nefarious vibes from the malevolent critics who mock and humiliate us and ruins our every step taken by their supercilious smirks. Those evil actions and their words leave us in pejoration.
Instead of those deeds destroying us, it should be taken as an opportunity to grow, enhance and better ourselves. As Dale Carnegie explains it in a humurous way, “When fate throws a lemon at you, make lemonade.” Also Peter Drucker quotes that, “Knowledge has to be improved, challenge and increased constantly or it vanishes.” All these remind me of a quote from GAME OF THRONES where Tyrion say to Jon, “Always wear your flaws like an armour and it shall never be used against you.” At last I would leave it to you to conceive it in you own way with a few words from Elbert Hubbard, who quotes: “The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure critism without resentment”.
