MWH 427 : She Called Me an “Attention Seeker” – How I Deal with Personal Criticism

In this week’s episode, I'm taking you on a deeply personal journey through the heart of being labeled “too much” or “attention seeker.” It's a story about my own experiences with criticism, the lessons learned, and how I've come to embrace my truth with more love and courage than ever before.

Join me as I share insights from my path of self-discovery, resilience, and the transformative power of love over negativity.


In this episode, you'll discover:

  • Criticism as a Mirror: I'll share why I believe that when someone criticizes you, it often reflects their own insecurities and internal struggles, not your worth.
  • My Path to Understanding: Dive deep with me into my journey of understanding the psychology behind why people criticize and how this knowledge has empowered me to live more freely.
  • The Power of Shining Bright: Hear about the moments I chose to shine even brighter in the face of attempts to dim my light, and why it's so important for all of us to do the same.
  • The Complexities of Growth: I'll open up about the bittersweet aspects of personal growth, from the joy of expanding my self-expression to the sadness of leaving behind what no longer serves me.
  • A Message from My Heart to Yours: Learn why moving forward with love and embracing your authentic self not only empowers you but also invites others to shine their light alongside you.

Some memorable moments from this episode:

  • “Criticism has taught me more about the critic's world than my own. It's a lesson in empathy and understanding, not a directive for my life.”
  • “Discovering the psychology behind criticism was a game-changer for me. It shifted how I see the world and my place in it.”
  • “Choosing to shine, especially when it's hard, has been one of my most powerful decisions. It's about claiming my space and inviting others to do the same.”
  • “Growth is a beautiful, complex journey. There's joy in expansion and a certain melancholy in moving on. Both are valuable.”
  • “To everyone listening, know this: Your light is needed. Embracing who you are is the first step in a journey of endless possibilities and shared brilliance.”

Join me as I reflect on these lessons, share stories from my heart, and explore how we can all live more authentically and supportively in a world that sometimes seems intent on dimming our shine.

This is more than just my story; it's an invitation to you to find your voice, claim your space, and celebrate your unique light.
