What is the saying? For every critical action, seven acts of encouragement are needed to rebalance the scale. This is such a modern, new age fragile snowflake philosophy that it makes my teeth ache with the sweetness. Everyone needs to learn to take criticism. In fact, it is a core skill and must be learned and practised. And not all criticism is wrong, it is more often the case that praise is undeserved. Praise should be the exception and earned. It is wrong to praise someone or patting them on the head for getting by or just doing their job.
