Inner Peace Tip #8 – How to Find Inner Peace When Being Reprimanded or Criticized?

No one “likes” to be reprimanded or criticized. But, it’s not the reprimand or criticism that interferes with inner peace; it is the resistance to the criticism that is painful!  So, instead of “resisting,” consider any reprimand or criticism as “feedback.”

Find the 1% (or more) of truth in the words being shared with you. Then, simply “thank” the person for sharing with you. Assure them you sincerely heard them and appreciate them for bringing this to your attention. And, since you found the 1% (or more) of truth in their words; you may even say, “You know, you’re absolutely right.  I see exactly what you mean.”

Remember, inner peace disappears with “resistance” not reprimands or criticism.

    And the resistance exists because you conceive of yourself as an individual (you have an “individual ego”). Were you to merge this into the Universe, there would be no resistance in the first place. (Arjuna could probably give you more detail on this if required…).
