Sir! No Sir!

HSP Observations

You know how some people like to encourage others by putting them down and telling them they’re useless and being all drill sergeant-y? And I really mean that it’s their idea of encouragement: they’re fully expecting you to go “Eff it! I’ll show YOU.” and turn all ardent and goal-achieving.

Man I hate those people. Never once have I reacted the way they expect. If a person that is in a position of authority (be it institutional or personal) tells me that I suck, I believe them. They should know, they’re the authority.

Want me to work harder and do better? You’ll have to give me positive feedback on things that I am doing right, and have me build on those. And if I’m doing nothing right, I think I’d better go and do something entirely different, don’t you?
