Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Certain things in life are just basically going to get you down.  Other things are guaranteed to lift you up. Exposing yourself to the public is one of the former.  I don’t do well with critism, I never have.  But I’m learning okay.  I’m learning to not punch you in the fucking face when you diss me handle critism and treat is with the respect it was given.

I have to remember that not everyone I meet will like me, or what I do, or even who I represent.  Sometimes no matter how hard I try, I’ll never please everyone. So this is me toughening up, holding my chin a bit higher, pulling a middle finger putting a smile on my face and saying;

Bring it on, bitches, I can take anything you’re willing to give 🙂

    Dude I have exactly the same problems but I think I am worse than you. I have this fear of people not liking me, so I always try to be this unassuming, unnoticeable person.

    How did you get past this?

    Most people dont like me when they meet me first time..

    unfortunately i dont always get it the right first time cos I am a)Nervous
    c)full of shit
    e)Nervous because of c & d…

    So I just stalk them till they panic and give in..

    works for me..

    Most of the time it is not you being criticised, but rather something that you have done. Try not to take it personally when this happens. Sometimes people just want to help make things better…

    The trick is to realise that everyone has an opinion and that constructive criticism is a jewel in the rough world of opinionated gits. Accept criticism that moves you forward, ignore what holds you back or insults you.

    Poetjie – I kind of over compensate by being the loud chick who comes across as totally insane and confident when really I’m just dying inside a little. Heh. No, I’m not that bad, I think being a cheerleader at school got me over my shyness. Standing in front of the rugby supporters with a fanny curtain on and having my boobs jiggle while I jumped kind of scored a bit of attention, eventually I just got used to it and the worrier in me went away.

    B – its so weird to see how you describe yourself like that when I didn’t get that impression from you at all any of the times we’ve been together. You’re divine darling, someone I could spend a whole day with and not ever get bored.

    Pkeike – hehe, I know the timing seems a bit dodge, but this post actually had nothing to do with our conversation yesterday. Okay, maybe a little, I cannot tell a lie. 😛

    trying to please everyone will only make you miserable. Just be yourself and dont be over sensitive (so much easier said than done)
