    Default What is harder for you to accept?

    What is harder for you to accept, a gift/talent/aptitude or a weakness/vice/shortcoming? Thanks to anyone who replies.

    The bad thing of course. I don't see what bothers you here.

    Of course being a gifted genius is really difficult for me

    Neither and both. Oddly, context matters.

    This is fitting, really, and is how I approach this question.

    Generally, I don’t tend to like receiving complements, particularly those that relate to qualities that I feel are eh I don’t know, easy for me? Or really I guess for acts or accomplishments I hope are more a norm rather than an outlier, but, I do enjoy receiving compliments on my work, or rather, compliments paid towards my work or creative pursuits. I tend to put so much of myself into my projects that I feel...shoot, I can’t even say exactly...not pride...whatever.

    But receiving criticisms, exposing my weaknesses, I tend to find that fairly easy to take since more often than not, it’s a weakness I’m already aware of and already actively working to ameliorate. And if it isn’t something I wasn’t already aware of, then I welcome the challenge and opportunity to discover a side of myself I hadn’t yet explored.

    I guess if I had to choose, I’d say it’s harder to receive compliments, but, context really is everything.

    Reworded: which is harder to accept? Something that you are destined for or something you must overcome to be free?

    and that was post #9000 ladies and gentlemen

    I agree with Bechimo, it matters.

    I've found with my struggles in depression and anxiety I struggle more to accept my positives than my negatives though...

    Most would say the latter but think about it. Ever seen a person that is so gifted yet unable to function well in everyday settings? Normal relationships or social things are impossible for them. Maybe the gifted really do have shortcomings to make up for their gifts because no one can have everything. So I think it could be both/either, depending on the person.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
