Office Hours is a place for the Ladies Get Paid community to connect, learn, and get inspired. This month’s theme is how to deal with critical feedback.
Getting critical feedback can be rough for anyone, but especially if you’re a perfectionist. When we tie our identity and self-worth to the expectations of others (or rather, what we perceive those expectations to be), making a mistake can feel like stepping n a landmine. We take critical feedback personally, because we have made it personal. The result can be a vicious cycle of working harder, self-flagellating, and sometimes even self-sabotaging. Burnout is almost always inevitable.
