Unveiling the Hidden Value: Embracing Criticism, Dilemmas, and Sorrow for Personal Growth

  Friendship has value, health has value, happiness has value, praise has value. This is true, but few people think that criticism has value.
  When you are surrounded by severe criticism, and the white eyes from the crowd knock you to the ground, making you afraid to get up and face it, you will definitely not consider how much value is contained in these sarcasms. A rational critic may seize on your weaknesses and attack you repeatedly, which is indeed unbearable. So, why not think the other way around? It’s always hard for people to discover their own weaknesses. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could list them all for you? When criticism comes, don’t just shed tears, silently write down your weaknesses, and then work hard to correct your weaknesses bit by bit. When the critics again try to latch on to your weaknesses, smile and let them know there’s nothing left to latch on to. Therefore, criticism has the value of making you better.
  Dilemmas have value. No one wants to get into trouble, and I’m certainly not here to encourage you to jump into it. However, when you are in trouble, you can understand that you are one step closer to success – if the setbacks on the road to success are a fixed value, now there is one less one. In addition, a friend in need is a friend indeed. When you are in trouble, as long as you wait quietly, those hypocritical friends will disperse, and the people who are still by your side are your true friends. Difficulties can not only exercise your abilities, but also screen out a group of friends who are truly worthy of deep friendship. Therefore, adversity produces talents, and its value lies in accelerating your pace towards success.
  Sorrow has value. We admit that it is not advisable to be depressed all day long, but we also find that sadness also has rare value. Sorrow seems to give people more inspiration. Compared with fleeting happiness, this kind of long-lasting and delicate emotion is easier to record. Therefore, sorrow has become a valuable literary resource with rich aesthetic value. Throughout the ages, countless poems have described sadness. For example, Mencius’ “worry about the world”, Fan Zhongyan’s “worry before the world’s worries”, Li Yu’s “asking you how much sorrow you can have? Just like a river of spring water flowing eastward”, Li Bai’s “cutting off the water with a knife, the water will flow even more” , raise a cup to banish sorrow, and sorrow will become even more sorrowful.” “Many sorrows”, Ouyang Xiu’s “Sorrows of separation gradually become endless, and the distance is endless like spring water”… These recorded various sorrows in life and ways of resolving them, these exquisite expression paradigms, have become the spiritual food of future generations. They have comforted and will continue to comfort the hearts of generations of readers, and their value is not insignificant!
  It is not just the traditional positive things that are valuable, but many negative things contain more precious value. Be careful and don’t overlook these valuable values.
