Praise V criticism

If like me you have a past that includes abuse its so difficult to accept praise.
Once someone has criticised you. That comment will stay in your mind for months after.
The opposite is. When someone praises you. That comment is forgotten within seconds.
The trick is, so I’m told, to re educate your mind to accept praise when its given.
Its not an easy thing to do but I’ve been told very effective.
So try and accept praise when its given and to remember it for more than a second.
I wish I could!
