Rapid Depression

Hi, My name is David. I'm a 17-year-old senior. I was feeling pretty fine, kinda good for the past couple of days and all of a sudden after I got through making some Chicken Alfredo from scratch. My brother came in and asked if it was Chicken Tetrizini. I told him no and he said he was not going to eat it. I immediately got this lingering feeling of depression and I basically have lost the will to communicate to anyone other than by hiding behind my screen and typing my words. This feeling has hit me at least 2 times this week (Sunday - Wednesday).

I know how it hurts David, you go through the trouble in making a beautiful dinner from scratch and in seconds all your effort goes down the drain. I have that happen to me quite often with my daughter. It hurts because we aim to please others. When this happens to me, I walk away for a few moments to collect myself by deep breathing and telling myself I don't need this emotional abuse. Breathe Agora :) I will enjoy the beautiful dinner I cooked with no regrets if someone doesn't want to eat it with me. Breathe Agora :)

I would love to have someone make me Chicken Alfredo. Is it possible to send me a virtual serving? I'll use visualization. David enjoy your evening, you are an amazing young man x

Chicken Alfredo is one of my all-time favorite pasta dishes. What your brother did was invalidate your efforts because (tell me if I'm wrong) he can be a selfish, insensitive A-hole sometimes, This has NOTHING to do with what you accomplished. If he didn't want to eat it, that's his loss. I know it can be tough to hear criticism or negative opinions, but when you are a creative soul - yes, cooking is an art - you discover that you can't please everybody. Try to grow a thicker skin. Be bold and keep cooking what YOU love.
