Sundown yellow moon, I replay the past. I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast...

I have been overtly sensitive to criticisms lately... I know it's not a good thing...

... but it surely annoys me to my core these days to hear out the list of things I'm doing wrong in my new role of a mother; or sometimes not even 'wrong', per se- but how they are 'not up to the mark'... how it could be done better if it was done by anyone but me.

It's a new-ish thing for me, I used to be somewhat open to criticism. I thought even in my non-confrontationational, shy, private, introvert ways- I used to be someone rather confident in my capabilities.

It was one of my strong points and now I have lost that edge, it seems.

I'm changing- evidently for the worse. Now it hurts, yes- hurts, to hear of my shortfallings.

I wish I knew how to change back.
