Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback.

Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.
