You need to be emotionally intelligent to handle criticism... there can be two types of criticism:
1. Criticism with good intentions like if your parent was criticizing you because he wants you to be the best, then better keep quite and dont give back. Think or judge whether the comment is correct or not, and try to improve yourself on it.
2. Criticism with bad intentions, the person particularly makes sure to criticize whatever you do! This is because he/she hates you and is obviously jealous of you abt something. Dont give a damn to that person, dont respond immediately to show that his/her comment is worthy enough. Don't defend on the comment, Give back in a different direction so that the person keeps mum.
