Check this out. People in the Arts/Entertainment field are supposedly in the top 5 depressing jobs. Hmm. Is it because we put our hearts into our work and when folks tear the work down, the person might feel like they are being torn down in the process. We have to realize that its the piece of work that’s getting criticized. Folks don’t really know you–the person behind the work, so we have to learn how to seperate ourselves from the work. Is it easy? No, but it’s something that must be done or risk being part of the statistics.
I definately agree with #2 because tell me, when was the last time you went to Mickey D’s and the person giving you your food seemed happy to be there…only time they seemed happy is if they are on their phone talking to somebody when they should be getting you your food.
