To tell you the truth, I don't have any problems of what other people has gotta say about me. Critics are fine, they help you to get better. But in terms of making (or writing) a good critic, you have gotta be neutral, balanced and positive. Not bias, destructive and making it sounds more like a brag. No, a condemn. You brag.
It is my friends you're talking about, buddy. You have no idea how much they sacrificed and worked hard for it. And that critic, was way far too much to be constructive. Don't think of a compliment, it sucks.
But then again, you're good, buddy. REAL good. Keep it up with more critics.
