Why do we ignore or get cross when someone tries to say something constructive that may help us? If you’re the type of person that doesn’t take to criticism easily, whether it’s constructive or not, you’ll probably struggle with this.
It stands to reason that we will learn more from other people’s suggestions, than we may initially know ourselves. Not everyone will know or manage to work things out the first time around. A different perspective always helps and as much as we would like to think we know everything, we don’t.
We never stop learning, bringing in new understandings. What we could do better with though, is learning how to let other people into our lives. Let them tell us things without us taking offence, because we either don’t like what they say, or we don’t agree.
That’s probably a good first lesson. A lesson that will open the door to even more understanding and knowledge that we didn’t have before.
