For someone to candidly share feedback with you is truly a gift. What you decide to “do” with that “gift” is up to you. I am continuing to learn as much as I can, from as many people as possible. I experience joy from the learning and the collaboration with people. It’s not always been like that for me, and the delivery of feedback from some, made me feel like I was bleeding from the ears… but I smiled and accepted it, thought about it (sometimes too long) and looked for pieces of truth within it and how could I improve. I have learned of late, that some folks have an excuse for everything, why they can’t do this or that, how unfair things have been, negative, negative. Sometimes that was me! Wow, what an eye opener. We have all been there at one time or another. I don’t have time for the drama, and the negative energy around it. Truth is good for the soul, and being able to see it feel good. Someone really cares for you when they take time and energy to give feedback, and for that I’m grateful.
