Happy Thoughts: February 17, 2021 at 11:59AM

Becoming defensive when someone makes a negative comment towards us doesn’t change what the person said. Since the only thing we can control is our reactions, we should look internally and build our reserve of self-worth and value. This is easier said than done, but the more we work on it, the better we will process hurtful comments and not allow others to bring us down.

Another thing that can help is trying to understand people’s intent. If they are trying to help, they may not be communicating effectively, but their intentions are still good. You can feel better knowing they meant to help. On the other hand, If they’re simply trying to hurt your feelings, you have control over whether or not you internalize that. Keep working on your self-confidence, and not internalizing negative comments will get easier and become more natural.
