There’s a big part of me that believes the rudeness and hatred from others is a necessary ingredient for us to create our success. In a way, it keeps us aware and in check with reality, rather than being coddled and disillusioned.

At the same time, just overall disrespect and unhelpful comments don’t help anybody. If we really want change, we would provide constructive criticism, as you said. Those who don’t do that aren’t actually looking for change, they just needed something to vent their pent-up anger on.

Glad you’re working to build up that confidence, but I have a feeling you already have it as well. Can’t wait to see you back out there!
