Now THIS is something worth re-posting.
It's important to remember that if you give a creator constructive criticism, and they chose not to take it, that doesn't mean that they "can't handle criticism" or "have a big ego." Taking constructive criticism means hearing the opposition out and taking it into account. It does not mean "doing whatever the critic says, or else you're some kinda egotist." Just as you have a right to not like something they do, they have a right to like what they do, and shouldn't be forced to compromise there creative vision. 

And no, this has nothing to do with me. It's just something that I've been noticing a lot lately.

I wish some people would understand this instead of just assuming the other is a big egoist just for not liking what someone says about their word, which depends on how the constructive criticism goes. But I've seen in most cases where "constructive" has lost its meaning. I know the meaning of constructive of course, and even if it's helpful, however the artist does their work is their choice alone.

That is a really good message, most people would just throw away other people’s criticism without a second thought while others may not just take it for other reasons. I feel as if many people don’t take that into account that much today.

While it's important to be open to criticism, it's just as important to always make sure it is YOU'RE voice and not someone else's.
