The best way to avoid criticism...

Is to hide.

To never show your work.

Stop creating, dreaming, hoping and trying.

When you have nothing to show, it can't be criticised.

Alternatively, you can get back out there and do your best to create something meaningful. If the criticism you face is true, it can help you change and grow. If it's untrue, it can do nothing at all. 

Either way, there's no reason to fear it.
