Haters gonna Hate

With the internet came a vast amount of information to us – how to videos, social media, and the ability to google virtually anything (don’t get me started on “doctor google”). It has been a blessing and a curse to have access to so much information, as well as be able to share so much more about ourselves. While this access to information has informed us, it also seems to have empowered some people to criticize and shame others. Mom shaming is a great example of this.

When we are criticized it is a natural defense mechanism to try and defend ourselves by justifying our actions. While defense mechanisms are a whole other topic, when it comes to our outer circle of unrequested critics, try not to get caught up in engaging them. In the words of Dakota Meyers, “don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t take advice from.”
