The wounds of a friend are faithful

(Proverbs 27:6)

It’s always uncomfortable to get personal criticism.  But, before you react, consider this:

  1. You have received feedback, which is essential for personal development, so thank the provider
  2. Let them know that you will reflect on what they’ve said and look for what you can learn
  3. They might be right!
