There is a sort of pause that many of us take when receiving criticism. It can dig down into some old beliefs about “what if we can’t do this” or “are we good enough”.

Yet to learn and grow through this process, we had to stop ourselves from wincing at some errors and problems in wording; instead, we needed to look for the lessons along the way.

We all can use some “revision” and “rethinking”.

Remember to approach any work on yourself with grace and understanding.

Be gentle as you look at yourself; treat yourself with the sort of kindness with which this God of love sees you.

We all have to let go of some control.

We practice letting go … of our control.

Reach out to others. Work with them.

This work is not just about you; it is for all of us.
