Jealousy

Another thing that causes people to criticize, give a hard time, or pinch your few remaining nerves is because they’re jealous.

If someone feels inadequate in some way, criticism is one of the ways that they try to bring people down to their level.

Your critic may be jealous of you. The person who is giving you such a hard time might be trying to restore balance in the situation by bringing you down, thereby supposedly lifting themselves up.

It’s A Perception Process

Receiving criticism, negative feedback, getting rubbed the wrong way by somebody is absolutely part of life.

Most of us don’t like to be criticized. How’s that for an understatement? But criticism really is almost unavoidable.

The only way you can live a life without criticism ever happening to you is to hide away in a cave, never see another human being or talk to anyone, just stay all by yourself all the time. That’s the only way that you’re never going to receive negativity or negative feedback from someone else.

Criticism can tell us how another person perceives us personally or our team. The difficulty is, this feedback is quite often tinged with the other person’s emotional state. It’s really hard for us to see ourselves and be 100% honest about how we’re doing. So feedback can be helpful.

Distorters Of Input Received

Years ago, Katherine Hepburn said, “One learns as they go through life, that if you don’t paddle your own canoe, you don’t move.” So it is with managing situations that provoke us or push our buttons. We must manage us.

One of the ways this is done is by managing what is called your ’emotional intelligence’. For better or worse, in all communications within the situations you encounter, you must manage yourself. We must handle the things that go on inside–no matter how the other person is acting or reacting.

The Dark Side

You see, there really is a dark side of conflict and criticism, when people are trying to pinch two of your last three nerves.

When we’re in conflict, we oftentimes will say things we don’t mean and sometimes we mean things we really don’t get around to saying. Only rarely do we truly communicate at a very deep level what we are honestly thinking and feeling.

Seldom do people speak from their own center of truth and expose their deepest most vulnerable feelings and thoughts at that moment in time.

Learning Everywhere, All The Time

Even if you are the expert, what can you learn from the people around you? There was a story that was told by Dr. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, author of the book On Death and Dying. She made significant contributions to understanding the process of death, and helping other people cope with death. Whether it is the death of someone they love or their own.

She told the story about a time when she was working in a hospital. Before her insights into death and dying, she was working as a psychiatrist dealing with mentally ill patients, and occasionally with terminal patients.

Apply Understanding Liberally

In all of your relationships you need to think first, what can I give to this relationship? And then second, what can I get from the relationship? It’s all about giving and getting. No one is so altruistic that they will do anything indefinitely without some kind of a payoff.

Overview all of your relationships, especially those where you’re communicating effectively. What are you giving to that relationship, what are you doing to make it better for the people around you personally and/or professionally? What are you doing to enhance their reality, and what am I getting back? Because the give and take human experience makes logical sense to each of us internally.

(…continued from last week)

Instead of automatically arguing or moving into an argument, here’s something you can do that produces more favorable results. These five steps can help you break through areas of resistance if a conflict occurs around you.

Breaking Through Resistance

#1 Take a Pause

First of all–pause. Literally stop yourself, hesitate for a moment, let whatever is going on happen. Let that person say what they need to say. Awareness of the internal resistance, getting ourselves to slow down for a moment and just stop our automatic reaction to what’s going on is to our benefit. So the first part is pause. Use that quietness, take a breath, slow down- that count-to-ten thing is very valuable.
