Some time back, I’d seen a preview of a show that had film stars have a heart to heart chat with people (common people) who hated their work/ were critical of their movies..
I remember seeing this one part in which actor Farhan Akhtar received horrible feedback for his work/ movies n in spite of everything the critic (a common man) had to say, he ( the actor) was composed n calm.
I was amazed at the response, n I wondered how come this actor received so much flak with such composure. I guess my answer had to come to me in an amazing way..
I’ve found, there are some people, I feel an urge (a strong urge) to support/ message/ help / offer inspiration n yet they are unable to connect with me. The response of which appears in ways like unanswered messages/ no responses against my urge to support/ avoiding me/ ignoring me..
N the interesting part of the story is, there are also some people who have an urge to connect with me, who I’m unable to connect to. Which means I’m ignoring their messages/ delaying in responding..
Am I being a bad person like the others who are ignoring me???
Certainly not!! Me( when I’m ignoring some people)and others who are phasing me out, are following their connections! If the vibration doesn’t match/ frequency of thinking isn’t alike, it’s obvious that the end result will be a disconnect..
And there is nothing wrong with the either of cases!!
It’s just a discord! So coming back to the question of, how can anyone respond to criticism in a calm manner??
Criticism is nothing but a discord!! A disconnect!!
My work has nothing to do with what others review it to be. My work, if it brings joy to me- I wouldn’t care what the critics had to say about it!! N hence the calmness during a bad review..
Isn’t that freakingly awesome!!!
It’s tough for some to get it!! I wouldn’t have got it a decade back! I get it now, cuz in my eyes, I’m really doing well!!
I’m painting well, I’m dreaming well, I’m living well, I’m parenting well, etc etc
If someone has something else to say about my life, it’s clearly a discord!! A different way of thinking on their behalf..
N that’s perfectly fine!! Everyone has a right to form opinions.
About me?? Go ahead!! Just that I’ve stopped caring, cuz I listen to my own heart!!!!
N that serves me best❤️😍
