My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care.

So Welcome!!

Self Love Practice Tip #8

This self love is a toughie. It will be difficult for many of us to swallow it. Here it is, if you walking in self love, you don’t get defensive when others criticise you, whether it is constructive or un-constructive. Most of us think that is somebody call out our name or say things that are not true about us, we feel the need to defend ourselves. It is kind of a natural thing we do. If you know who you are, you know yourself in and out, you are not even going to waste your time being defensive about what the other person is saying or to prove what they are saying is wrong. Because you know that’s not who they say you are. Why spent time arguing unnecessary. Now if it is constructive criticism and someone is really trying to help you out. Take that criticism, look at it from an objective point of view and you are going to be like okay, I understand what they are saying, maybe I could work on this, I see their point of view and you still don’t get defensive because you know yourself and you know what you can work on, might take what they are saying with a grain of salt, implement it into your life or you might not to. The way you don’t feel less about yourself, depends upon how much you are walking in self love.

Hope this helps. Come back tomorrow for more self love tips.

      Constructive criticism is a helpful way of giving feedback that provides specific, actionable suggestions. Rather than providing general advice, constructive criticism gives specific recommendations on how to make positive improvements. Constructive criticism is clear, to the point and easy to put into action.

      Absolutely. Getting defensive with friends, your boss, your partner, and yourself often backfires. It pushes people away, makes us look immature, and sends a message that we’re unable to regulate our emotions. In the moment, getting defensive can feel like the only way to cope with threat. But in the long term, it undermines us and our relationships. When we lash out, we dig ourselves deeper. Remembering our firmest beliefs and passions can make us feel less defensive. Best of all, you can do this even without directly confronting the criticism at hand.
