No matter what, the reality is that you are your own self. Every time you receive feedback good or bad you must take a step back and see the truth about it. It is not about questioning everything but rather it is about introspection!
By realizing your own self, you will be able to better lead a fulfilling life. Receiving a compliment is always nice. It is human to take it and to use it to build your high horse, your own Pedestal. On the other hand, receiving a complaint is never nice, but it is human to take it personally and get upset. But we cannot stop at being human. We need to strive and better ourselves, we need to search for WISDOM and ENLIGHTENMENT by introspection. Only in this way are we able to GROW both Personally and Spiritually.
