Meeting Criticism with Love Part 1: Noncomplementary Behavior

Do you find yourself getting overly defensive when others criticize you? Does the prospect of being criticized prevent you from sharing something you’d otherwise love to? Then you’ll definitely learn a thing or two from this series on Meeting Criticism with Love. Join me as I go through my own personal journey toward creating a healthier relationship with criticism so I can create with ease and flow.

“Psychology has a golden rule: If I am warm, you are usually warm. If I am hostile, you are too. But what happens if you flip the script and meet hostility with warmth? It’s called ‘noncomplementary behavior — a mouthful, but a powerful concept, and very hard to execute. But people do manage to sometimes behave in noncomplementary ways. And when they do, it often completely shakes up a situation.”

In this episode I share a five minute clip from an episode of Invisibilia called Flip the Script, and then dive deep into the concept of Noncomplementary Behavior.

Topics Covered:
– What is Noncomplementary Behavior?
– Benefits of Practicing It
– Mindsets to Help You Respond with Love
– Examples of Meeting Criticism with Love
– Preview of Part 2 (Airing Wednesday)
