7. You Don’t Take Constructive Criticism Personally

When you are feeling insecure, it’s hard not to take things personally, even if that criticism was meant to help you.

But as you grow older and you become more confident in yourself and your abilities, you are able to actually reap the benefits of constructive criticism and you don’t let your feelings get in the way of becoming a better individual.

Also, as an adult, you have more confidence and conviction in your decisions, you no longer think that you are “ugly”, you take responsibility for your actions and you won’t be afraid to fail anymore.

You realize that failure can be one of the best teachers you’ll ever have.

Do you know any other signs that someone is over their high school insecurities?
