I hate getting negative feedback or criticism of my work.
We all do, don’t we?
We get attached and emotionally invested it.
But feedback is how we grow and improve.
Gardeners prune plants to make them resilient.
The plant panics, and uses up all it’s energy reserves to grow faster.
Growing is great. But we also want to be happy and avoid pain.
We want to hear nice things about ourselves, and our work is a natural extension of us.
So you have to deal with that balance.
Emotionally distance ourselves from our work.
And seek negative feedback so we can improve things.
