You Can Absolutely Tell Me If I’m Annoying You, Just Know It’ll Really Hurt My Feelings

Lately I’ve been trying to be more open to constructive criticism in order to become a better person, so you feel free to tell me if I’m annoying you – but you should know that it will also completely destroy me emotionally and I will probably never recover.


I have no problem with taking a little criticism. That’s why I’m open to any and all thoughts about how you might be perceiving me. I’d really prefer not to hear anything even remotely negative though, because I will lay awake thinking about it for many nights to come. I will probably also have a lot of annoying follow-up questions after that.


I am my own person, and I’m confident in who I am. I don’t care about other people’s opinions of me because I like myself, and that’s all that matters at the end of the day! But if I’m annoying you then you should definitely tell me and I’ll stop whatever I was doing before, then feel self-conscious about that specific thing, especially around you, for the rest of my life..


If I’m talking too loud or going on about something I told you already, please call me out on it. I want to do better! That’s why I’ll be mentioning the interaction to my therapist for at least two months after this conversation if you say anything bad about my behavior or personality.


Lots of people don’t want to hear whether or not they’re being annoying. But I’m making the conscious choice to be open to it, despite the fact that I will never view our friendship the same way again if you say this to me. I may not survive this!



Even though it will make me really sad, I encourage you to tell me if/when I’m starting to irritate you. Oh, it’s happening right now? Well, that’s totally fine! I’m just gonna go home and not talk to anyone for a while now. Maybe ever if I’m so insufferable; it just seems like a service to society on my part. But thank you so much for letting me know!
