Maybe I fret too much. Sure. Fret. Sounds like a knot to me. A knot I can’t possibly undo.
If no one says anything about my stories, I think the stories are bad. Or at least failures. Or boring. Or something generally not nice. If someone says something nice, I think awesome and OMG I’ll never manage that again. They shall be so disappointed. If someone says something bad…well, I try not to think about it.
This is a lose/lose situation.
You know what else is lose/lose? Sleep deprivation. Which I am experiencing and which is going to make me draw this post to a close.
But first a question: Why do you think some people tie themselves into knots and others don’t? Why do some people accept a compliment and other foolishly react to them? Nature or nurture? What?!
And last, I’ve finished (kind of) story 29.
