Acceptance of uncomfortable or unpleasant situations (ACT — Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)

“Practice breeds familiarity and familiarity yields acceptance. Sometimes putting yourself out there as an artist, writer, etc can be very scary and nerve-wracking, but as you do it the feeling of fear subsides with time. The comments or negative feedback will no longer be a dreadful experience. It is the same with embarrassment. Perhaps your fear is caused by shyness, uniqueness, or accent as in my case. Accepting it first and embracing the fact that you are different, but not less than will reduce the amount of embarrassment it causes.” by Marie Jeanderine Cook https://link.medium.com/0T1XJafvbY
