Recently, I read an article where comedian Louis CK told comedians how to handle online criticism.
Part of the problem, he said, was that “comedians can’t take criticism.” I think he was right, but I think it’s more than just comedians who can’t take criticism. I think most humans can’t take criticism. Especially online.
So here’s Louis CK’s simple advice to comedians (and me and maybe you) for handling online haters.
“If you don’t like the person, stop googling yourself every ten seconds. Cause nobody’s making you read it.”
That is perfect.
The best way to handle online haters?
If you ignore haters and don’t go looking for it, you’ll be surprised how very little of it finds you.
Have you ever googled yourself? (I’ll go first. I have, a lot. And the results very rarely made me feel better.)
