People often react badly to criticism and the reasons can be complex, according to therapist Dr Harville Hendrix.
1. The criticism might be true
2. The criticism might actually apply to person doing the criticising
3. The criticism might be a secret wish that they would like to be able to do it themselves.
Therefore any decisions need to be based on a true appraisal of the situation and not superficial anger about receiving criticism.
