But overall, she was handling it well. Similarly,  his son also knew negative criticism is all part of the business.

He says that they have a quote in their home that says, “Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over to annihilation can that which is indestructible be found in us.” He emphasizes the fact that we have to face the fear until it doesn’t bother us anymore. He calls it “leaning into the sharp parts.” He adds that if we want to lead a good life, we have to be willing to face the struggles while remaining loving and kind. That’s the real challenge.
