What do you do when trolls, haters or critics leave negative comments? Well, this is the nature of being in a digital world. Everyone online has an opinion and some of them seem to make it their mission to leave negative comments and reviews. 

There’s a difference between constructive criticism, feedback, and comments that challenge you in a productive and respectful way. However, comments that offer absolutely no value can hurt, especially if they detract from your content. 

In today’s solo episode, I’m giving you 8 ways to better deal with the haters, the critics, and those pesky trolls so you can stay inspired and continue sharing. 

The very first way to deal with negativity from the mean trio of online commentators, is to just anticipate it. You know they’re out there, and the sooner you make peace with the fact that these kinds of people exist, the better your perspective and ability to handle those comments when you see them. 

If all you have is positive reviews and comments on your work, it may indicate that you’re playing too small. Everyone from Brene Brown to the Dalai Lama receives negative comments, and you’re no exception, so anticipate it and don’t be surprised by it. 

“I always have compassion when people are coming from a place that even if they are being hateful, that they just have different experiences than I do.” 

I lay out 8 ideas and tips for dealing with the haters, critics, and trolls online when you’re growing your business as an artist and knowing your own truth is another part of it you don’t want to miss.
