I wrote this post and shared it onto my healing page……because it is an area of my own healing I have needed to face and work through…
One real sign of emotional intelligence……is being able to hear criticism and not get upset and react from a place of hurt.
And not just immediately dismissing it.
That’s the ‘hurt defensive ego’ reaction.
EQ, is about hearing the criticism, discerning the heart/soul giving the criticism, thinking whether there is any merit and validity and if there is, accepting that with maturity and honesty and then choosing to grow from it.
I know I have achieved what I set out to do…..when I receive comments like this in response.
“Your posts always make me think 🙂 thank you”
I don’t expect or insist anyone agree with me….
But, if I help people to think…. that is only ever a good thing.
