“The moral of the story is: Try to please everyone, and you will please no one.
It’s natural for us to try to win the approval of others, whether it means pursuing a respectable career, following our peers, or acting in certain ways. We crave social acceptance to reassure ourselves that we’re doing the right thing.
But whatever you decide to do, someone, somewhere will have an opinion about it. People might question your motives, your reasoning, or nitpick at the smallest details.
Sometimes, people can take an issue and blow it out of proportion. They take offense over something. They might even make personal remarks.
1. Recognize the source
2. Manage criticism accordingly
3. Know that the issue usually has to do with them, not you
Focus on the Road Ahead”
