Now you get to learn a fun fact about me. I read WAY too much into everything. I know that I do it and yet, I can’t stop. Basically I made a suggestion to a group I’m a part of and it was vehemently rejected by a person I idolize and then a moderator came in and reiterated how stupid my idea was and now I feel like the worlds biggest idiot.
I know it’s probably not as bad as I’m making it sound but I was just taken aback by how strongly these people felt about NOT doing my suggestion (and no, I don’t think everybody should think all my ideas are good ones…). It just reminded me of why I don’t speak up a lot with new and original ideas. I’m terrified of rejection.
And I take it poorly and over-react. Like I’m doing now. And I know it. And I can’t stop. Argh.
