“Criticism is something we can avoid easily by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.” – Aristotle
But then what kind of life would that be? It wouldn’t be living. Criticism is not always a bad thing, it can be of help, to look at yourself and think how can I do this better? Of course if it’s not constructive then it shouldn’t be said but we cannot control what others say. One must use their mind to assess whether it is something to ponder or something to dismiss.
