Urgh criticism is The Worst, isn't it? Just the thought of it makes most of us clench up. So let's have a peek at what's actually going on.
In this episode, we'll explore why we are so afraid of criticism, where that 'urgh' reaction comes from, and what we can do to get more comfortable with what other people think.

“Self-doubt isn't particularly logical or rational. Most of the time we can see that this is not a very healthy belief for me to hold, but somehow, can't go through with an alternative.”

"Every quality is neutral. There is no inherent best or right way; it's all in the context and the nuance between the two poles."
