*blows dust off LiveJournal*
This platform is what I'll have to use, since I need to be able to make a long post and gather anonymous comments.
TL;DR version: Comment and tell me about anything I've done that makes you dislike me. Be specific and tell me how to fix it.
What brought this post on? I found out today that a lot of people have a problem with me and the way I conduct myself. Although I was suspicious that people might have a problem with me, nobody had ever respected me enough to tell me about it until today.
This is causing people to not hang out with me at social functions, not invite me to parties/dinner, and even people I've considered good friends lied to me about why they didn't hang out with me or respond to my messages. There's got to be a reason behind it, and enough people have a problem with me, that I'm willing to accept it's a problem with me.
I know a few people who just have a bad attitude and don't treat people right, and they refuse to accept that they have a problem and take feedback. I have no desire to ever see these people and avoid them whenever I can. So, I don't want to be one of these people and I need help to fix it.
Anonymous comments are allowed. I will unscreen once I verify it's not spam and it has to be a legitimate complaint. What I mean is, you have to identify a specific thing I have done wrong and tell me how I can improve myself. If you just say I'm a jerk that won't do me any good.
I especially want to hear from anyone who specifically avoided me or did not interact with me at a con or meet, because of something I've done. It's clear to me that I'm not welcome with many people at their parties and dinners and I want to know why that is. I know that when I get snubbed once that gets me in a bad mood and sets the tone for the rest of the day/weekend. I can take rejection but it's often the manner in which it's served (ignored texts, being told lies by people I trust, etc.) that really gets me angry. I'm not sure what to do about it.
Please - comment and tell me: What is it about me that rubs you the wrong way?
- Rate your satisfaction (or dissatisfaction) with me...
