I think I literally hate being criticized. Part of me cries out - “What if it’s not true? How can I listen to you? How can I feel this hurt if you could be wrong?”
And the other part of me says, “She’s older than you, she’s smarter than you, she’s probably right. Just take it.”
Which is right? Is one right? Why does it have to hurt this bad? Why do I have to be so messed up?
I hate being criticized.
Distance is not for the fearful
Darling, it is for the bold
And in exchange for time with you, dear,
I will spend more time alone
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
