Someday I Will Learn To Listen To What My Sub-Concious Says...  
I will not care about things that I can't change, things I can't manage, and people who treat me shabbily. I will not take everything to heart. I will not allow myself to worry about the words of a bully. Something stupid like sucking at suggestive selling should not ruin your whole night. Especially if said bully makes you feel stupid and small. Especially this close to your vacation. It's a useless moment of your evening. You should not spend the next few days obsessing over it. Even if your morale is in the gutter, even if you're exhausted and just want vacation to be here. You will not lose your temper and walk out. You will start looking for new employment when you get home. You will not spend your entire vacation worrying over whether you'll have your job when you get back. You will keep thinking ahead and looking for opportunities that will better suit you.

YOU WILL NOT DO THIS TO YOURSELF!

You are not as brainless as you think and you need to stop wearing your heart on your sleeve. You actually DO deserve better than this and you CAN find a place that really needs you and respects you for who you are. You let too many others put you down and make fun of you just to get along. The time for that is over. Before you really make yourself so sick and nervous that you have to go on meds.

You will also stop worrying over whether your talent at writing is slipping. There are still people that enjoy your work and don't think you're letting them down. You're posting huge chapters on a fairly regular schedule. You're dealing with some pretty intense subjects while usually totally stressed to the max. Your beta hasn't quit in disgust. You have noms in the awards this year, from the sounds of things.

YOU ARE YOUR OWN WORST CRITIC! GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK BEFORE YOU END UP QUITTING BEFORE YOUR MUSES ARE DONE BECAUSE YOU CAN'T STOP NIT-PICKING YOUR OWN WORK!

LET IT THE HELL GO! STARTING NOW!

Everything you said here! *shakes fist*

You are awesome. Your writing is awesome. And you deserve to be treated with respect at work, dammit. *eyes your coworkers and stupid customers* O_o

And I will NEVER quit as your beta, b/c 1) it's not in my nature to do something that horrible, and 2) beta reading for you guys is EASY and ENJOYABLE! So there. :p~~

*glomps you tight*

Amen.

On suggestive selling... Hubby nearly walked out of the dealership and never bought a car had we not been desperate enough to have keys in hand soon enough to be able to drive it to KC last week instead of using a rental (our other vehicle is an old pickup which JUST got 100k miles on it). The reason he/we nearly walked out? Too much and too forward pushing. Soft sell is my approach when I DID have to deal with marketing (i.e. selling memberships) and while I suspect I wouldn't have done well if I was on commission usually most people took me up on it. Sometimes people forget there's a contingent that doesn't like to be preached at (hubby is one of them) and doesn't take too well to people trying to push something on them they're not overly interested in.

Hugs, you! Step away from your critics at work- you cannot sell to people who don't have a job. That is what people don't understand. People need money to buy. The consumer circle seems to perplex people.
You are sooo talented. Never forget that. Your imagination brings joy as the rest of us trudge through our hard work days too.
Don't obsess, the bully has forgotten, walk away with your head up. Yay, vacations coming!
Hugs you tight- make a video- that blows all other thoughts!

"hugs'
I love your writing. I have for years. Even though I am bad at reviewing, you know that I love your work. I want you to continue. I enjoy it. You are important.

The economy is bad right now. People are not buying unless they really need it. Right now they are worrying about what tomorrow will bring. You can make them come in. You can't make them spend money that they do not have.
I think you are great.

*hugs*

And if you can find a way to bottle this post into liquid form, you can sell it to me so I can drink it. I need a whole lotta this myself some days. ;)
