What to say to someone who criticizes and puts you down

What do you do when someone criticizes you? Whether they say you have a big head, a big nose, what you wear... whatever it is, you can’t take it personally.

When a person criticizes you, they are trying to bring themselves up by putting you down. What these people are trying to do is find your perceived weakness. What I mean by that is, say if you don’t like the colour of your hair and you’ve made it known that you don’t like it, they will catch on and think that is your weakness. Therefore, they’re going to grab onto it and go for it. They’re going to constantly criticize your hair.

If they can’t find any weakness, anything you perceive as a weakness, they might just grab something out of thin air!

People who feel good about themselves don’t usually criticize others. They don’t have the need to. So, when someone puts you down for any reason, you’re not the one with the problem - it’s them!

What you need to do is not let it bother you. I know internally it does. It bothers everyone! If someone said something bad about us, we automatically feel bad. But don’t feel bad about yourself. If anything, feel bad about that person. You’ll wonder what’s wrong and eventually it’ll come out. You will find out what’s wrong with them.

In the meantime, don’t let them know their comment bothers you. Once you do, they’re going to go on and on...

Just change the subject. Don’t stoop to their level. And move on.

Good luck. Take care! :)
