How to Get Over the Fear of Being Judged

  • The worst is the first. When someone, especially a stranger, rips your comment, article, video, or podcast into pieces for no apparent reason, it stings. Stings bad.
  • The second one stings, too, but a little less. Then, after a while, your skin will thicken and the sting will hurt less. Separate your feelings and really read into the comment.
  • Be honest by asking if they have a point. If they do, call yourself out and tell them directly and to the rest of your following that they are right. Whoever made the comment will respect your honesty and become a fan.
