"Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger." Franklin Jones
A few months ago now, I initiated a personal feedback project. It was triggered by a number of factors. I was soon to start the third part of an Emotion-Focused Therapy training and was interested in possibly using myself as "a case study" for the course; I had received some quite surprising & confronting feedback from a friend and I wondered how idiosyncratic or widespread his viewpoint might be; I had been encouraging feedback in groups that I run and I wanted to explore this more deeply; and finally I'm in a very good position to ask for & receive honest, thoughtful feedback from a broad social circle.
