There are two types of criticism: the constructive and the hateful. Both have very different motives: the former aims to push us higher and the latter to pull us down. And I distinctly say ‘push’ and ‘pull’ because those who criticise to pull us down are generally people who are stuck at the bottom themselves; they are provoked by jealousy, ignorance, and inadequacy in their own life, which they need to project onto those who are trying and succeeding. Do not let them triumph by allowing them to pull you down with hateful comments. They do not understand your passion and drive, your happiness and purpose. Do not let them steal those away from you, because you do not deserve it and they do not deserve the satisfaction. Let that type of criticism either fuel your journey to success even further or fly over your head. No matter what people say, keep going.
