If Criticism hurtsWe all get criticized. That's part of life. Parents, partners, friends, haters, strangers, they all have an opinion on what you do, what you don't do, and what you should do. But if the critique hurts and leads to anger or sadness, it means you are a victim of two unexpected enemies: your ego and your inner critic. If you want to be free from the pain of judgment, you need to say goodbye to your ego and welcome your true Self, the authentic and unique person that you are.
Henny Bos links personal experiences and his experiences as a counselor to statements about criticism by great thinkers, such as Jung, Freud, Tolle and Aristotle. In this handy, pocket-sized book, he gives you practical tips and tools to deal with negative feedback constructively.
If Criticism Hurts is easy to read and a must-have for both recipients and givers of criticism.
Have fun reading and learning!
