Can’t Stand Me:  What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself, or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?

This is so easy to respond to:

 

What do you find more unbearable: watching a video of yourself,
or listening to a recording of your voice? Why?

 

All of the above!

If I have to prioritise the two I would go with the video because you can see more of me.   I have a passionate hate of being seen, even by me.  Plus it would feed my obsession with perfectionism, where I would keep watching, finding more and more faults and working on them until they were fixed.  Of course, they may never be fixed so it would be an eternal fix – it job.

I did listen to my singing once.   As a consequence, I felt an overwhelming sense of need to say sorry to the poor people that I had song to before.  For in the mistaken belief that I could sing and whats worse should sing to other people!  Hubby said I sounded like a dying cat but I thought he was teasing.  In fact, he may have been too kind.

I think some of the problem is that I live a lot of my life online now.  Only sharing myself through my writing.  A video that can be watched or a tape that can be heard is too much like offline communication.  I like the safety of being behind the words, shadowy and only known in part.

Author:

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
