Who are you letting in?

We've been conditioned to believe that feedback is a good thing, intrinsically good.

BUT I've found that it's not always good. Be careful about where you're getting feedback.

I give my trust away. I give it and it's up to the person to lose it. I don't make them earn it.
I give away second chances and third chances - sometimes too many chances.

Proceed with caution when you feel like someone:
  1. doesn't seem to have the right intention
  2. makes the process of receiving feedback so toxic that it drains your core
  3. has fundamentally different beliefs or perceptions that you just can't make it make sense
Decide if you're going to let them in anymore. Maybe what they have to say just isn't valid.
