I am thick skinned

The Daily Prompt: 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  cooly shrink into a shell which I have developed over the years, listening to various forms of criticism, some honest, some brutal, perhaps an outcome of sheer jealousy or might be critic’s own insecurities.

Whatever may be the reason initially it used to get bothered when people misunderstood me, I even tried explaining my point of view and felt pained, but not any more…… but then I have learnt my lessons hard way. 

I can easily make out the intension, intensity, approach as well as the reason for criticism, occasionally I react if there is a need otherwise I keep quiet  maintaining distance from that person.

“Do you criticize me just because you can’t see me happy ?”

“Do you think what you do is perfect and rest don’t know their job?”

 I love myself and my intentions are pure, my spirits are high and my soul can cure.

Then why should I bother to know what you think? I am quiet confident of my actions and always ready to learn.

Whatever it is good, bad or ugly, I take full responsibility. 

For those of you who are my real critics, I have all the respect and gratitude because due to your honest feedback I continue to improve in all aspects of my life. In fact my father is the best critic who is honest, friendly and frank, a bit brutal in his approach, that’s his style of conveying things. Next in line is my elder son whose forthright views I solicit to gain insight to the mind of Gen Next.

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CRITICISED ME TIME AND AGAIN TO MAKE ME WHAT I AM TODAY 🙂

SLOW DOWN; YOU GOT ONE LIFE

Have you ever thought about Why slowing down is so important in life? Life is not only to run and chase the deadlines and create a million-dollar fortune. Slowing down is an art, indeed a therapy to become more mindful of your blessings of life. It means to be more present at the moment. To eliminate the stress of our lives and enjoy the simple joys that we otherwise tend to miss out on. It is a soul awakening to feel eternal happiness. This verse highlights the need of slowing down in life before it is too late.
