This is just one trendy expression among many others that have an evil and unhealthy underlying psychology to it.
It is encouraging people to literally bend over and "take it" without complaint because the abuse is just going to continue and no one wants to hear
about how much it can hurt. Cause yeah, it hurts. But everybody hates complainers... right? So everybody learns to suffer in silence and this is
what "growing a thicker skin" is really about.
But some of us will never, ever grow a thicker skin. Not me, at least. I was born with a fine sensitivity, thank you very much, and I would rather
just choose not to subject myself to further abuse. So how about, "go f-ck yourself," to everyone who's ever said... "grow a thicker skin," to
anybody. Because I would rather just eliminate the poison from my environment so that I don't become poisoned, which is an option for all of us-
Also please reconsider the nature of a complaint:
If you go into a restaurant and order a burger with no mayo, extra well done, but receive a burger that's rare with tons of mayo on it, you have some
options about the way you want to respond to this dilemma.
1. You can keep your trap shut because you have learned to suffer in silence, in which case the restaurant workers will never learn their own
mistakes in order to work towards becoming a better establishment as a whole in the future. Because if you don't know there's a problem to begin
with, you won't have any motivation to work towards a solution- this ignorance is a negative for everyone.
or 2. ...you can complain and change the future. Because what people have by and large apparently forgotten... is that there is a positive aspect to
complaining (as long as you're not being an overboard d-ck about it) because when you let others know what they have done wrong... it can then change
everyone, and thus change the future, so that the mistake doesn't happen again. Then we can all move towards manifesting a better, safer, and
healthier environment for ourselves where we never have to grow thick skins.
It's about eliminating error and fine tuning our realities so we feel less pain and less stress.
It's not about growing a thicker skin just so that we can endure more pain and more stress, like really?
Cause at the end of the day? I'll never grow a thicker skin. I feel everything and furthermore... I won't be quiet about it. I will not suffer in
silence any longer! But I understand your shock and I understand that you will want to silence me right away because these trendy psychological
meme's have washed your brains over time and again and have become a stronghold there in your minds. But I hope that I have made you question your
own reality a little more at least, regarding these trendy annoying sayings that everyone seems to blurt out without understanding what they're really
