Help! I need a thicker skin

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

In desperate need of any skin thicker than that which I currently possess. One that reflects poorly thought out comments would be fabulous, as well as one which would not allow everything negative to be transmitted straight to heart. Please let me know if you hear of one. emoticon

    create an imaginary pyramid of thick glass around you. you can see out, but choose what you allow in. and you can enjoy your skin the way it is.

    I love the Eleanor Roosevelt quote, "No one can make you feel inferior without your permission." Some people make inapproprate comments because they don't think before speaking. Others do it because they get bizarre satisfaction from making others uncomfortable. You aren't responsible for what others say and you don't have to defend yourself. Smile and say, "Thank you for your opinion." Then forget what they said. Their comments really aren't worth thinking about for more than one second!

    A thicker skin is something you build slowly. There is always going to be something to get to you, you just need to find your own ways to go around it. You need to start to care less about the comments and the negativity. You are the one who knows yourself better than anyone else, don't let anybody and anything get to you.

    I also wish I had a thicker skin. But on the flip side, being 'thin' skinned makes us more sensitive to other people's feelings.
