If you keep your feathers well oiled the water of criticism will run off as from a duck’s back. – Ellen Swallow Richards

Some will like, be neutral, dislike or criticize what you do in life. Realize that criticism may be constructive or a personal attack but don’t assume the 2nd is always the case. Don’t let it stick by taking it personal too long & cause you to quit things. If it’s helpful criticism then learn from it but don’t dwell on it. If it’s an attack, control your reactions emotionally which sometimes means silence. Persevere forward!
