I was embarrassed because she told me this in front of several other clients. At first, I shook it off. Oh well, someone doesn't like the way I dress. That's okay, not everyone will. Then I sat back and thought about the fact that she told me it has been a topic of conversation among people I don't even know. I was sad, embarrassed and pretty mad. I know that I can't please everyone, and I am well aware that my style is a little out there a times. But to have someone say that to my face and give me a look of pity mad me pissed.
As a mental health professional, I know that dwelling on the negative instead of looking at the positive can cause a lot of unnecessary stress. I like the way I dress, and I feel comfortable in my clothing. So why did this one lady get under my skin so much? How is it that I can receive positive feedback almost daily from you, my wonderful readers, and people in my life, but this one negative comment put a damper on the rest of my day? I thought I was past that point in my life where I cared what others thought about my life choices.
So this is where you come in. As personal style bloggers, we put ourselves out there everyday. We need to be able to accept the good along with the bad. Has anyone ever insulted your style either online or in real life? How did you handle it?
