”Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.

They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

Telling someone that they do not take criticism well is not a useful criticism. If they take it in stride, well, then you were wrong. And if not, well aren’t you pointless. Also, shut up.
