Episode Info:

In this episode, we look at how to deal with criticism from your loved ones. 

Why We Take Things Personally:

  • We depend on others for security and needs
  • When others do something that feel threatening to our security we can take it personal
  • This can impact our mental health by adding anxiety, sadness or resentful feelings

How to not take it personal:

  • Gain some perspective - can you see things from their point of view? can you ask clarifying questions?
  • Take some space to work though how you feel about the situation and to gain some clarity
  • Refocus on yourself, stay busy with your own needs
  • Dont "Climb Down" and be negative in response.
