You get to choose whose opinion matters

Eventually, everyone receives criticism.

Whether you’re deserving of it is up to you.

There are some people who are too sure in themselves and choose not to listen to criticism that is deserved.

And there are some that are unable to filter out the noise of comments and take things to close to heart.

The people who are happiest in life are those that understand which comments to listen to and which ones are only distractions.

Being able to do this comes down to self-awareness.

If you truly understand your strengths and places where you could improve, you get to choose whose opinion matters.
