Normally, I do not post links to other stories inside of comments, but here I will make an exception. Critics are always present. We can not let critics win. Being criticized hurts. It hurts because we are human.

I have a process for coping with criticism. I label words as true/untrue and useful/not useful.

I only spend energy on what is true and useful.

This strategy helps me cope.
