The third reason…

This is in continuation to my post few days back on two reasons for not giving frank feedback. The third reason, which I suppose it to be, has come to my mind just few hours back.

Doesn’t matter how frank the feedback is, knowing the person who receives it, the doubt//confirmation that it may/will go waste often do play its own discouraging role.


One may say it shouldn’t matter, but as we all know…


Words said unheard,

Words written unread,

Just remain words,

Make no difference

If expressed or not.


None of us likes our words remain just words!

i am yet to read the first two reasons...
but i surely agree with the third one...


wat is the point in talking to deaf ears...
it is like pushing against a wall to move it...
you end up exhausted.. and the wall stands where it was standing...


while resisting negative feedback is a talent, resisting constructive criticism is a curse.. which only leads to 'NO feedback' :/

Very well written.

Hi Prams,

Honesty is still the best policy, the last time I checked. lols! But a 'feedback' or a 'critique' can be both positive or negative.. this would depend on how it's said or on the intent of the person dishing out the feedback.

The better guideline on how to handle this is what our wise peers do --- extract those which are constructive to your improvement -- and ignore those which have no aim but to hinder your progress or goals.

People should be careful with what they say.. words are powerful - it can either build up or destroy. Now the question that should be asked is -- which one do we aim to do??? Build or destroy?

Blessings to you, Prams.

Third one occurs more often.. Isn't it ?

no one wants to hear negatives about their writing. everyone wants the reader to simply fall in love with their stuff. i think we have to seek out criticism if we want it. we have to seek it out from someone we respect.
