I love how Hank exposes the roots of this fear. I was born with a confidence debilitating condition - thin-skin-iosis.
I was overly sensitive to criticism and my empathy quotient was over the top.
Now empathy is a good thing and so is sensitivity.
I think people who charge through life have "created" a persona that is actually a walled version of themselves.
Now off to brunch, Yomar.
Have a great day :-)
