Does criticism affect you?

I don’t know if it’s just because I’m not feeling particularly resilient right now but veiled and blatant criticism is really affecting me. How do I grow a thicker skin? One incident was in relation to work. The woman in question has always been quite abrupt and quick to pull up on things but I don’t know if it’s personal to me or she’s just like that with everyone. I just feel she could go about things in a better way. I hadn’t done anything wrong. I guess the job I did wasn’t quite up to par but I’m struggling with it all right now. The other incident was on a class whatapp where another mother couldn’t understand why I was finding the home learning overwhelming. Urgh I don’t know. Is it me? How do I just let things like that wash over me? I think even without all this crap right now I do take things to heart and berate myself but I don’t want to sweat this sort of crap. I want to not dwell on it and move on. Any tips??
