added this goal when I got criticism on one of my comments on 43T and saw how bad I was taking it. My outward response was a (well accepted) apology but inside I was defensive, upset, thought of leaving the site, etc. As if the world would end, or I would attract eternal anger, when I do something that’s not right (or liked).
And that’s a mechanism inside of me that most of the time makes me avoid (the possibility of) confrontation. NAH! Missed opportunities, that’s the result. Better learn that action is the way to go – and if someone doesn’t like what I do realize that that is not the end of the world.
