Actress Phindile Gwala has faced criticism since she joined the acting industry over ten years ago.
She said she has worked out how to deal with unconstructive criticism.
Phindile explained that it didn’t just magically happen that she grew a thicker skin to go with her career in the public domain.
She revealed that it took her a few years to understand that she doesn’t have to take people’s unkindness as an advantage of her job.
She said in the beginning she used to catch feelings when people criticised her but now critics don’t do any harm to her.
In the meantime, the actress has been busy with her first love, theatre plays, and monologues to ensure that she keeps her skills sharp.
