RESPONDING TO CRITICISM

David Burns, M.D., states in his rule of Law of Opposites: "If you disagree with a criticism which is untrue and unfair, you will immediately prove that the criticism is entirely valid. In contrast, if you genuinely agree with a criticism which is untrue and invalid, you will instantly put the lie to it. This is a paradox."

 

So how do you respond to criticism? Are you defensive or do you go on the offensive?
