    I like it. In this life you have to take hits to be something you want to be. If it means you have to be the sucker, then you have to also be able to take the emotional punch of betrayal. I read one of your articles from 2008, about how you have to be able to use criticism to become a better writer. As someone with avoidant personality disorder on the road to recovery, I learned recently that not many people are actually out to pull a sucker punch on you. One of the best things I’ve found that helps with social anxiety is writing poetry and then putting a first draft on somewhere where your going to cop a lot of flak.
    So far I’ve even enjoyed some of the worst heart wrenching feelings.
