Two Cents & A Million Smiles

This is something I've been observing:

The public always assumes that they can say anything about a public figure. They think that when you're a public figure, you just got to accept that the public will evaluate / criticize you - and the public likes it that way.

BUT, when a public figure responds to what has been said by the public, the public forms a perception that the public figure is "defensive" or "can't take criticism" or "lame for even bothering a minor comment", while in fact, the public figure just wants to have a say too - because every human has the right to.

Fact is: you didn't like it when you got criticized back. You didn't see it coming. Now let me tell you, that THAT's how it feels.

So, before you criticize someone, just accept that that someone might respond or criticize back. CRITICISM WORKS BOTH WAYS. Don't think that this world is yours to say only.

Public or public figure - oh come on, we're all humans with feelings.

I agree! Do not judge lest you be judged
coz the measure you use to judge some one will be used to judge you too !

I agree with you. In every single word. I think that's why I've been holding out so long until I come out of my shell, because I'm insecure about what people will think of me. But whatever we do, some will like it, some will criticize, in the end we have to stand firm with what we believe in and let nothing bring us down.

So, ganbatte!

I totally feel you. It's very hard to accept that we're all humans, and the human tongue is super slippery most of the time. Keep smiling Rika :)

I totally feel you. I found it very, very hard to accept that we're all humans, and at the end of the day, the human tongue is super slippery. People feel and say and believe whatever they want to believe. Keep smiling Rika :)
