I go to a writing website where people post what they have written and other people criticize it. I’d just read this book about the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. It told how those accomplished writers tore each other’s work apart, so I thought that was the best way to review other people’s writing. People got seriously upset at my harsh criticism, so I softened up on my criticism a lot. I feel better about it now.

my parents weren’t very critical but my in laws are.

Being overly-criticical is bad. But when people put you down or are critical there is usually a slice of truth to their barbs. I hate being put down.

I can’t really take criticism

If someone can it shows he’s a strong person or he just take it to himself and it’s hurtful

Never use the truth as an excuse to be mean.
