I've received glowing feedback through my entire career but recently got some constructive feedback on something I thought i was doing great at, from somebody I least expected. Feel shitty. Advice?

Remember that constructive feedback is an opportunity to improve! Nobody expects you to be perfect and they’d be doing you a disservice to only give positive feedback. Even if you’ve been doing well in this area, If the feedback seems valid then put your focus towards working on this area and getting even better!

Another thing to consider is that feedback isn’t always accurate. While this person is likely coming from positive intentions, it is their opinion and nothing more. You’re always welcome to say thank you, mull it over, and move on. Not every piece of feedback you get needs to be assumed and acted on. Just something to think about..

Hey 🐠 fam - quick context and question - I have been in 4 long term relationships and then my 4th became my husband. Been married very happily for 2.5 yrs now. Yet for some reason, I find myself thinking about bf no.2 a lot recently. We parted 11 yrs ago & haven’t spoken since.

There has been no apparent trigger for this and no matter how much I distract myself, memories keep coming back.

Is this normal or am I just weird?

P.S: Still very happily married & very much in love with my husband.
