Tell us about the harshest, most difficult to hear — but accurate — criticism you’ve ever gotten. Does it still apply? Photographers, artists, poets: show us HARSH.
I am a big fan of harsh criticism because I am always looking to improve. I really want to be the best I can be.
Recently, my friend of 13 years told me that I am cold and distant. It came as a shock me to because I had never perceived myself to be either of those. She basically said I am not mean or anything but stubborn and don’t budge and I am not a warm person.
I wasn’t upset or annoyed that she told me. I like to hear how I was perceived. I was just surprised that it was me she was talking about.
