It’s not because she frowned at what you said, that you’re silly.
It’s not because he didn’t like your idea, that you’re stupid.
It’s not because they are not interested in the things you are, that you are boring.

Their response is not a measure of how savvy, smart or interesting you are.
Their response is not a measure of your worth.
Their response is a reflection of their views, their ideas, their perspective on things, their preferences, their style.

Treat their response for what it really is – a reflection of their views on what you put out there.
No more, no less.
