Is so invaluable.
Especially when you don’t feel like any of your fears, worries, or other emotions were really heard growing up.
My best mentors can tell me when I’m overreacting and I don’t take offense to it because of their delivery. It’s so refreshing. To be validated but then also given another perspective in a non accusing way.
I don’t typically become defensive with feedback, but often feel that my own concerns/reactions are dismissed. It’s nice to be heard. And again. I always tend to think people will react badly to me if I’m honest about what I’m think. It’s nice to be surprised. I shouldn’t assume everyone will react badly to me.
And now I’m going to go eat tacos.
