Real life experience:

She‘d chide me in public about my physique and dressing sense frequently. When I told her I didn’t like it, she said she did it because she was my “most constructive critic” and would say things that nobody else would tell me, and that I didn’t ‘appreciate’ what she did for me because I only wanted to hear nice things about myself from people.
