    Dear Addy:

    I’m mostly very critical of myself and sometimes I also put that pressure to being better on my girlfriend… tell others what to do…  sometimes I force them to be better“- inside you there is a figurative child and a figurative parent. The parent voice in you is strong (it’s “this critical negative voice” that you mentioned in your previous thread). It says to the child: you are not ___ enough, you need to get better at it, get better at it, NOW! And the child gets anxious and feels overwhelmed by being rushed this way, so he whines but he doesn’t say anything (no words) because he is used to not being heard.

    Would you say that there is such a dynamic of voices within you? And if there is, would you like to give the child within you words so that he can clearly express himself?

    Dear Anita,

    Well how silly of me I didn’t even knew the 2nd page is created, just today I noticed 😂
    How are you doing? Good plans for the weekend? Things that you love during your weekends?

    About that yes! I do have that critical negative voice. but I’d say it’s dynamic because there is voice which makes me relax and resilient about things as well. As a child I’ve been like that who Always listened to my parents and Grandparents and someone who is not very demanding. I’ve sacrificed for lot of things and never asked for it. Although somehow, I knew it wouldn’t help me fulfil my emotional needs.
    But don’t you think I striving for being better is a good thing? Now I do kind of feel that I’m good enough (Not sure though) But I do like to make myself better than the last day
    So that’s why “child gets anxious and feels overwhelmed by being rushed this way” Interesting….

    PS Have a great weekend ahead

    But don’t you think I striving for being better is a good thing?“- yes, it is a very good thing!

    Dear Anita 🙂
    How are you doing today?

    What do you think what’s actually happening when I’m not able to accept good compliments? It’s more like Meh for me

    Dear Addy:

    Maybe you don’t feel that the compliments you receive are sincere, that is, that the person who compliments you really means it… maybe they are just polite, or maybe they fake it.. could it be?

    Dear Anita:

    Let me give you some examples:

    Today in my interview Recruiter told me I’m really calm and friendly person (Somehow, I was able to accept this compliment – because I started to believe that long ago?)
    But, When he said you have quite diverse and impressive work experience (I was like ooohkkyy)

    I don’t think that’s just to be polite is it?

    Also, when some gives me any physical compliment, I can’t accept without doubting or questioning myself. Although while another part of my brain thinking like does this really matter? NOPE. most of the time

    Dear Addy:

    Let’s talk a bit about your first example: “When he said you have quite diverse and impressive work experience (I was like ooohkkyy)“- do you think that you have a quite diverse and impressive work experience?

    Dear Anita:

    Dear Addy:

    So you are not impressed with your work experience in comparison to others’ work experience. That the interview recruiter was impressed, that’s a good thing, for the purpose of  being recruited. If the recruiter chooses someone else over you, it would mean that he was more impressed by someone else’s work experience than he was with yours. Do you agree?

    Dear Addy:

    You asked yesterday: “What’s actually happening when I’m not able to accept good compliments? It’s more like Meh for me“- when you receive a compliment and/ or when you are asking yourself if a compliment is true or not, try to think in a more balanced way. For example: you are told that you are attractive. Instead of thinking something like no, I am not attractive, think: I am more attractive than some men, not as attractive as other men.

    Another example, a recruiter tells you that your work experience is impressive. Instead of thinking something like: there are so many people with way more impressive work experience than mine!, think: my work experience is more impressive than that of many people, not as impressive as that of many people.

    Dear Anita:
    Hope you’re having a good weekend

    So, I’m thinking about stepping back from my LDR that I talked to you about. Because I’m constantly thinking why I should have to wait for something which have less chances and top of that suffer from intimacy and impatience instead of just have a good time with someone who’s near me?
    I also ask myself is would worth the wait? and I’m in my head I’m like not really there’s lot of unexplored adventuress people that I haven’t met yet then who knows?
    At the moment I’m not desperate for love either. I’m just focused more on different areas of my life

    However, I’m hesitating to tell her (We already not talking for 3 days – Because I said “From your side there should be some efforts to remove the distance”) Maybe stepping back and rethink this as friends is better idea?
