When receiving feedback from others, realize they are often projecting their own fears.
For example, about a year back, a friend of mine joined a running club. I thought he was crazy.
He was saying he wants to get in shape and also be in community with others while doing it so it makes it more fun.
I thought, why do a running club? Why not join an adult sports league or a workout class?
As I later sat back and analyzed the situation — I was answering his question based on what I would do.
If I wanted to get in shape and be in community — I would join an adult sports league or a weekly work out class.
Be careful when receiving feedback.
Is the other person being objective or are they simply answering what they would do if they were asked that question?
