Oyyyyyyyyyyyyyy your mom and mine go to that same school of thought, huh???Why does my mother always pretend to be honest? why? why????? I don't want you being honest, but supportive. I posted her a picture with my hair and asked, if it looks acceptable for a job interview. I just pulled my hair with some claw pins off my face.I'm growing out now and I'm at the beginning of a cg journey, I can barely figure out how to make my hair for wearing down. Her answer: ''I like it more on your application picture (It's a rule in Germany to include a picture in the application. Mine was done by a professional photograph and stylist who just combed my hair until it became very big and put a lot of hairspray in). Finally, they liked you with it too''. Fine. Now I feel as I would have nothing to offer except of a hairstyle which I can't remake. I feel exhausted. Why don't she understand, that I need support, not a suggestion, I can't follow? as I asked, whether it looks so bad, because I can't make it the way she liked it, she answered ''no, but its not as good as at the picture though''. Now I'm checking my hair every two minutes in hope to figure out how I could fix it. I should prepare for the interview instead of looking in the mirror. But I can't. CIBC, I really feel with you and send you thousand of hugs. It's devastating to be put down from a person, who 's meant to encourage you. Sorry for complaining girls. I spoke it out and I feel better
Once my mom gave me a hard time about a certain Ann Taylor Loft spring jacket I had that was getting TONS of compliments (in NYC streets.) I told her once a person I was interviewing with COMPLIMENTED ME ON THE JACKET and my mom went, "Yes, but you didn't get the job, DID YOU?" Yes, mom. YES. MY JACKET, which was my OUTSIDE JACKET AND I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE IT ON DURING THE INTERVIEW, COMPLETELY INFLUENCED THEIR DECISION. And they decided to compliment me on it just to throw me off.
Crazy ladies. CRAZY!
