What does it mean to be “dissed?”
I wrote this down the other day and I can’t remember where I got it from, so I’m sorry that I can’t credit the original author of this definition. (I know it’s not Seth Godin, because I looked it up.)
It can feel discouraging to be rejected by a college or a company after an audition, and possibly disrespectful or disapproving if they didn’t do it properly (example: “Thank you so much for your recent audition – ultimately, we decided to go with a NYC artist”).
“Disavowing” is defined as denying or repudiating something or someone. That’s really hurtful. I don’t think I’ve been “disavowed” by anyone – at least if I have, I don’t know about it, and it’s probably better that way.
If someone routinely disses you, cut that toxicity out of your life. There are enough people out there who will support you and appreciate you. Don’t waste time on people who don’t. Don’t give in to other people’s negativity – or your own, for that matter.
