A precious piece of advise

When reproach is leveled at you, instead of rebelling interiorly or exteriorly like an animal bristling up, observe like a man  the bearing of what is said; be impersonal and honest. If the criticism is right and your wrong, do you mean to resist truth? Even if it had its origin in some enmity, have the courage to acknowledge your error, and the noble purpose of utilizing the ill-will that God puts at your service. For evil itself is in the hands of God, and ill-natured criticism, because it is the sharpest, can turn most to your profit.”

-A.G. Sertillanges
