“When you are not attached to praise or criticism, an interesting freedom is yours.”— Kute Blackson
Getting praises can be motivating, however we later feel that we have to meet someone else’s expectation. When getting criticisms, we feel exposed and want to withdraw from the pain it we may cause. But if we rid ourselves of the praises and criticisms, then we don’t have to seek someone else’s approval. We’re free when we no long seek praise and listen to our critics. We don’t have to be defined by those things, but freely feeling comfortable in our own skin. We can praise ourselves, if we wish and not be too critical with ourselves because we can be our own worse critics. The ratio should be 1 to 3, one criticism to three praises.
