Take it positively and act upon it. Make a mental note that you will always look at criticism from a positive point of view. Then you will have an open mind and it won't fill you up with anger on hearing someone's criticism.

Reaction to a criticism depends on the person who who makes it. If it comes from genuine persons say like our parents we have to take it positively and try to shape ourselves because it is a positive criticism which moulds us to success. If the criticism comes from worthless people avoid giving importance to it and carry on with your work.

Try using the word RESPOND instead of REACT in your question. You may discover an answer that suits your situation. The usage REACT means that the remote control of your behaviour is with others and RESPOND would mean that you control / decide how you behave. To develop this approach, one needs to assiduously practice introspection / journaling / meditative techniques in daily life consistently over a period of time. When the mind is cultured after sincere and consistent practice, it will issue out as an APPROPRIATE RESPONSE in any given situation.
