Choosing who we listen to.

Words from those we disagree with and disrespect can still hurt us deep down. They can throw us for a loop into self-doubt.

A recent experience reminds me of the challenge from Brene Brown: write down the names of the people whose feedback is important to us on a small card. Let the rest slough off.

Easier said then done, but worth remembering that criticism is not always worth listening to.
