Criticism vs Concern: Criticism is when you disapprove through the expression of fault or shortcoming. A concern is an interest where you express what is important to you or affects you. I hear his comment towards my blog entry as a criticism. Yes, I understand that he cares about me and he wants me to get the facts straight. However, this is due to my obvious shortcoming (in his opinion) about my knowledge surrounding the topic of other military Korean wives. ::sigh:: maybe he's right but honestly, I don't want to hear it. I am extremely shy about my writing and I did not ask for a critique on my writing style or the subjects that I am writing about.
I feel judged by my DH's comments. I guess in my head, I just always want to be right and perfect in his eyes. Yet, when I don't live up to that expectation (because of something he said) then the insecurities begin to fester inside me. I begin to question everything he is says to me; minutely analyzing each sentence, trying to figure out if there is a hidden meaning behind his words.
I guess it's important to me that my DH finds me well informed and educated about many different topics. I want to please my DH by showing off my intelligence. Craziness huh? Pretty insecure you say? I am ok with it. I'd rather be completely honest about myself.
