My toughest critic
I've often thought my biggest critic was myself...but upon quiet reflection this morning (yeah right) I realized that my toughest critic is not myself but someone else. I got to wondering why this was...I wouldn't call this person critical, but every time we're together I become "all thumbs" when it comes to everything. I try to cook and it doesn't turn out, clothes I thought were cute seem boring and dull, everything is held to a higher standard in comparison and everything I say comes out wrong. I feel as though I am always searching for approval from this person. You're probably wondering why I would want to be around them if I feel this way, but I think it has more to do with me and my own perception of this person. You see, to me, this person is flawless. Graceful, elegant, classy, kind and dignified. So my reason for posting this is to ask, how do you avoid feeling that people such as these are your toughest critics?
