Thanks for sharing that wonderful perspective. I completely agree that defensiveness gets better with experience. I also think (or at least hope) that with time, becoming more honest about your flaws helps as well. As I became more confident, I became more honest about my own character flaws. I personally have always struggled with reacting too quickly to criticism in the moment and frankly, that hasn’t totally disappeared from my personality.
