Sometimes I really forget to STOP and really take in good feedback.
I often bulldoze through (or right past) compliments and acknowledgement. It’s something I’m working on.
As a child under constant criticism/control, and then as an actress for 15 years, I basically trained myself to have a wall against any feedback at all. I used to take it allllll in the food and the bad, and at some point I just switched it off unless someone basically holds me down to compliment me.
I even learned how to PRETEND to accept a compliment so we could just move the friggin conversation along people.
I haven’t looked at reviews in years, but I think I’d like to make a daily or weekly habit of revisiting reviews and kind words and REALLY taking them in, actually feeling them, instead of thinking of positive feedback of a box to check, it’s really a mirror to the soul, I think.
Walls are just a lot of WORK that I’m letting fall away more and more.
