No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

So I do some volunteer work in the community, and it seems no matter what kind of job you do, there are always people who want to critique you or feel that they could have done a better job than you.

Now, I don't want to use this space to complain, but I do want to know how people handle criticism. I'm asking this because I'm the kind of person who keeps repeating other peoples' comments in my head and I just can't seem to get over it. I guess this particular situation bugs me too because I take time out of a very busy schedule (similar to every other CreComm) to volunteer.

How do you get over criticism? Can you just forget about what people say to you? Or does it eat away at you like me?

Let me know what you think.


  1. 1. Get over the comments, who cares?
    2. Get over yourself, no one really cares, they just enjoy bitching.
    3. Toughen up or you're going to be eaten alive in the future.

  2. ha ha i'd like to echo Anonymous' comments, but with a much softer, less numerical tone. People are always going to find fault with your work, but that doesn't make it bad. Harvest the advice from the criticism and always be improving, and remember that perfection is a goal that makes people go crazy. Or just get petty: "Pff you think you could do better? Go ahead i QUIT!"
