Constructive criticism is considered valid logical criticism about an idea by the use of rationalism and reasoning skills. A lot of people consider constructive criticism to be pejorative in nature, but in actuality, it is far from the truth. Constructive criticism can actually help people in improving themselves by means of taking input from the person giving it.
Today’s society considers any kind of criticism to be a shade against a particular person when in reality that person might have good intentions and is actually saying it for their own benefit. When taken in stride, it can really help the person improve themselves. To delineate whether a person is giving constructive criticism or just being mean, you should first look at what they are trying to say and in what context. If you do a little bit of introspection and realize that what that person is saying is objectively true then it is probably better to listen to them and change whatever it is that they found not so great. Most people do not give offensive comments directly to a person’s face so whenever they do bring up criticism, your first reaction should be to think that there is something good in what they are saying.
