1. Avoid Arguing

One of the best tips to remember on how to deal with negative comments is to avoid getting into an argument with the other person.

Although your defenses might be up and you feel like giving out a tongue-lashing, try to stay calm and objective.

You totally have the right to defend yourself but sometimes regardless of what you say, the other person will have a million reasons as to why they are right so don’t give them that power or a reason to further criticize you!

Let the other person know you are receptive to what they have to say but you won’t tolerate belligerence.

Be Positive and Empathetic
