Feedback? It's a present!

A random, deep going experience on receiving feedback

Feedback? It's a present! Cosima Laube

I received feedback today. Written feedback (written, for good reasons).

Want to guess what happened? .

I found myself instantly looking for "the good" and "the bad" things.
I was literally looking for judgement.
I found myself kind of longing for judgement!
Judgement like I have been conditioned to for years and years. Judgement like maybe most of us are conditioned to - since school... or earlier.

Instead I found "just" observations.
I found valuable experiences, insights and thoughts from the person offering me the feedback.

I found words like a valuable mirror in which I am free to choose to look into.
I found myself free to choose what I want to do with that 'picture' I see in that mirror I've been offered.

I found words helping me to grow further.

I found respect for who I am as a whole human being.

This was such an incredibly valuable experience.

Feedback really is a present!
