How do you deal positively with negative comments being thrown at you?
I have a lovely hairdresser and have just been to have my hair cut which i love, the hairdresser has done a lovely job, and people I know comment said it looks nice. My mum wanted to see it and because I do not live near her and cannot get to see her easily I sent her a photo. As soon as she got the photo her comments were very negative. She said it looked appalling and that I had a bad hairdresser and should find a new one. I pointed out that I liked the way it was done and other people said it looked very nice. This happens time and time again. I keep the same style because I like it and it suits me but my mum hates it. My friends and work colleagues all say it looks very good.
If they all say it looks good then it must be true and when I said to my mum that more than one person liked it and so that must count for something she did not comment. I did not force them to say it looked nice. They said it independently so I would like to say that their comments are correct and my mums comment is incorrect.
I don't really care what my mum thinks because she is wrong, but I am puzzled as to why she would think she is correct and they are all wrong. I have not had one negative comment from anyone else except my mum who said to me "I am telling you the truth, and the truth is, your hair is appalling and you have a rotten hairdresser and should go somewhere else"
