TL;DR: Feedback is not a literal gift like the kinds you get a few times a year.
Personally I've heard the expression that feedback is a gift, but I would imagine it's meant in the abstract sense that you should be thankful and accepting of it, not the literal sense that the article suggests.
"LeBron sure is gifted!"
"What do you mean? He's not wrapped and tied with a bow!"
Suppose it was a tongue-in-cheek article? Bet the writer has kids. Dad joke level 100! :)
u could have tweeted 3 paragraphs instead trying to get clickZZZ. This feedback is a gift lololol
