“However unpleasant the feedback pill might be, think how much worse the experience would be if any of your mistakes were shared with a wider audience.”
How true, even for me, I would prefer that others would give me honest focused feedback in person, rather than publicly.
I also would love it if the praises would be dished out in public, that would inflate my ego reasonably.
I would think the same things would be applicable for every human being.
hopefully I would remember these prayer if I’m being praised in public, a prayer which goes like this,
“O Allah , do not call me to account for what they say and forgive me for what they have no knowledge of [and make me better than they imagine].”
