Constant criticism whether home, school, work or relationship can prevent you from moving forward in life and success. No matter how hard you try, they will always find a flaw in everything you do. You should not have to live in fear of others reactions, be afraid to speak or even voice your own opinions. If you find yourself in that situation then it's time to turn around and walk away because that person or group that makes you feel this way is not wanting the best for you. They are only holding you back. Who wants to feel silenced all the time?! You should be able to discuss anything without fear.
