“Every extraordinary or successful or remotely memorable person in the world has only gotten to where they are because they didn’t give a fuck about being cringey.” @dahman454 on TikTok.
I’ve been helping a good friend with her singing gigs for the past few months. It’s amazingly fun AND… I always leave steeped in CRINGE….. like I just majorly embarrassed myself. I’m not a professional singer and I’m SO incredibly sensitive to every snide remark or criticism that comes my way. So on that note, I LOVE this article titled In 2023, I Am Cringe But I Am Free from Maybelle Morgan at Refinery29.
Somehow, we all have to get over feelings of cringe so we can do our pioneering work, realize our loves and passions, and be fully ourselves. Let’s do that.
