When People’s Feedback Matters and When It Doesn’t

Since we live around people, we get all kinds of direct and indirect feedback from them. This feedback is about how we act, what we feel, and what we think in relation to their own values and worldview.

Now, because human beings’ perception of the world is subjective and limited, sometimes some aspects of our worldview and some of our values can be skewed or invalid when compared to reality. As a result, the feedback that we give and receive can be meaningful, helpful, and honest, or pointless, manipulative, and damaging—and everything in between.

So when does people’s feedback matter and when shouldn’t we take it to heart?

And when a person feels stuck, sometimes they feel and behave as if they actually are stuck. This quickly becomes complicated when people carry their childhood environments into adulthood. All of this and more make personal relationships toxic, complex, problematic, or dissatisfying.
