How often have you shared your excitement about something with someone, only to have them pour cold water over you saying things like “Really? That was an interesting thing to do!” or “You did WHAT? Don't you know it's not going to work because of A, B C...Z?”, and even “OMG how STUPID could you be???” How was that for you? Not so much fun? And what happened to your excitement and joy? Did you start doubting yourself, thinking that you really must be stupid? You know what, just because someone else doesn't get it, doesn't mean you don't. What if you knew a whole lot more than them? At least, you know what's fun for you. How would anyone else know that? So when you are enjoying yourself or have a great new something, remind yourself you're more than OK and say "Just for me, just for fun, never tell anyone." Then if you do share your joy with someone and they don't get it, smile and thank them for their “interesting point of view.” their 'interesting point of view.'
