Getting Confronted

You know that painful, stressful moment when a friend or colleague confronts you about a problem they see in you?

In that moment you are receiving a valuable gift. You stand to benefit so much from listening. They may have nothing to gain by taking the risk to speak up to you.

Thank them and ask to hear more. That’s the wise, fitting, and difficult, response to someone who cares enough to give you negative feedback.
