    There's also a fine line between accepting useful and/or helpful criticisms in order to help us grown/improve and being overly dependent on the opinion of others (to the point of needing "approval"). It's not easy to keep a healthy balance between the two at times.


    Definitely not easy to balance the two. I think people, especially creative people, need that approval because they want others to see or feel what they feel in their creations. You create for yourself first, then hope others get something out of it too.

    It only really bothers me when it's a legitimate comment on my behavior; something shitty I said or did and got called out on. Deserved criticism. Other than that...

    I swear to god I went to college with Stuart Smalley's inspiration. The puffy sweaters with shoulder pads, the posture, the knees, the lisp, the Breck-girl hair. Even imagined himself becoming some kind of therapist (he arranged his bedroom with his desk facing the door, complete with name plate). Named Ralph.

    I choked on my own tears the first time I saw this sketch.

    I find when someone points out something negative about me in a negative light, I don't care. I am generally a "don't give a fuck" kind of person, which lately I've been hearing intimidates people. As you can see, I'm like 6'0" and 30 lbs. Not intimidating...


    But when they tell me it offends them or whatever I listen.

    However, when I NEVER listen is when they compliment me. I just can't accept or agree with compliments. I don't think I'm as smart as I let people think, nor as confident, nor as funny, definitely as annoying, but not as attractive or in shape or hard working as they CONSTANTLY tell me I am.


    Wow. Weird to right it out.

    Why do I hear that all the time and never Believe it?

    Jake Green played by Jason Statham in 'Revolver' because you want people to know how good, attractive, generous, funny, wild and clever you really are. "Fear or revere me, but please think I'm special." We share an addiction. We're approval junkies. We're all in it for the slap on the back and the gold watch. The "hip, hip, hoo-fucking-rah." Look at the clever boy with the badge, polishing his trophy. Shine on, you crazy diamond. Cos we're just monkeys wrapped in suits, begging for the approval of others.
