Best advice for handling negative comments from others
You know, I use to worry about negative comments and let them really get me down. They still can but I have learned to distance myself from the regular naysayers/negative commenters. My husband is good for me in this regard because he rarely lets things like this get to him so he helps me put things back into perspective. In light of that, I think running the comments by someone else for perspective is a good thing to do.
We also should not let other people control what we do. We have to live our lives to the best ability, raising our children in the way we feel is best and if we are not doing anything wrong, then it is no one else's business.
The real problem comes when it is personal and hurtful. Again, my husband is my rock when it comes to things like this too because he hugs me, tells me he loves me and usually tries to help me get over it.
How do you handle negative comments from others?
I handle negative comments by (a) I usually address the person who has offended me, if it is necessary. Sometimes people become offensive when they are hurt or confused.
(b) Simply stop talking when the conversation becomes offensive to me.
or (c) I build a shield up where I stop talking when the conversation becomes offensive to me.
