I’ve always been one to watch things fairly carefully. I consider this part of my mindfulness training. One of the things I’ve noticed that occurs more often today than in the past is that people are increasingly hyper-aware of what others think. When paying attention to all the criticisms you will find what you seek, i.e. more of it. If your a leader within your niche you will invite the same. The only way to get around this is to be completely invisible to the world.
