I had a challenging time trying to converse with my placement supervisors today. I was shocked at the negative things they had to say, and I ended up becoming a little defensive of my behaviours and engaged in some unhealthy attitudes. I feel down when others try to talk down to me about the things that I'm doing wrong, but perhaps I need to have a little more self-esteem and be assertive. I dig my heels in when my supervisor tries to coerce me into doing something. And, I get sensitive when it comes to my evaluation and feedback. I challenge myself to become more of a listener and try really hard to stop procrastinating about talking to issues that come up, and address them. I will ask, "what is it I hope to get out of this situation?" and go through with it. And, I want to stop complaining and making excuses for my behaviours.
