And they make THEIR problem your problem. People hate being uncomfortable. So when someone struggles, or acts in a way that makes another uncomfortable, they hold YOU responsibility for their discomfort.
Why should we have to be responsible for our feelings, but others can't? It's a very real, and frustrating expeirence. Unfortunately, we can't change people. But we can, with time, learn to empower ourselves and recognize how to protect ourselves emotionally and mentally when other people make THEIR interactional issues with us OUR problem.

This is why there's such a stigma with mental health. People will attack your coping methods, because it bothers them, or invalidate your problems, because it's not their problem.
Or because they're your father and think being mean and threatening will scare you into making yourself instantly better.
I think what really matters here is what we've all been waiting.Winning a NASCAR Cup Series race is incredibly, unbelievably difficult. Ultimately, you have to be good and/or lucky enough to put yourself in position to win, which is hard enough in and of itself, and then you have to hope for the Galactic Alignment.
Second place in a Cup race might not be the absolute best day, but it's the closest thing to that - a pretty darn good day. Bubba, you'll never see this, but you didn't fail anybody, my man. You done good, and you've been doing good. Keep your head up and go get 'em next week.
Chase elliott after 6 full time seasons in cup: 17 wins, 1 championshipChase never going to pass Kyle in Cup wins.
One example was Letarte saying that there was no way that Kevin Harvick was going to win the race. That might be just peachy for you, but I bet SHR. Harvick and Busch beer weren't very excited about it.I didn't get that impression but I guess it's a matter of opinion

I think it's a reasonable prediction to be honest. I think most of us pegged Brad K for being the next Tony Stewart.Chase elliott after 6 full time seasons in cup: 17 wins, 1 championship
Kyle busch after 6 full time seasons in cup: 19 wins, 0 championships.
Hate all you want, Chase is every bit as good as Kyle was at this point in their careers statistically speaking. Coupled with chase arguably having better equipment at this point in his career than Kyle Busch did. To say he will never pass him in cup wins is a bit obtuse. Its an outstanding feat to accomplish, 60+ wins. He's on track to be at least close to Kyles total, if not pass him in championships AND wins. Larson had 6 cup wins at 6 full time years in cup. Then went on a tear and won 10 more the following year. You never know when someone is going to get red hot, and when someone is gonna win 1 or no races in a season. If chase averages 3 or 4 wins a year the next 20 years, he will be close. Chase has the advantage here being in absolute top dollar equipment for the foreseeable future, also has the advantage of not racing JJ im his prime. Which personally I think was Kyles Achilles heel, much like larson was to chase last year.
I'm not saying chase is GOING to pass Kyle in wins or championships, but to say that he flat out won't or has no shot is preposterous.
I think that was him just stirring up the underdog drama.One example was Letarte saying that there was no way that Kevin Harvick was going to win the race. That might be just peachy for you, but I bet SHR. Harvick and Busch beer weren't very excited about it.
He gained half a second over 17 laps. Harvick coasted the final lap behind Cody Ware. The difference was pretty small.Bubba gained close to second on Harvick after moving into P2.

The first two years with Chase, I was extremely skeptical about him going anywhere tbh. Once he won in 2018, he's been on it like Donkey Kong ever since. Never in a million years did I think he'd win a championship watching those first 2 years. Now he's on par with two of the best to ever do it in Larson and KDB.I think it's a reasonable prediction to be honest. I think most of us pegged Brad K for being the next Tony Stewart.
I think 2-3 titles and 50-60 wins is reasonable for Chase. Both Chase and Larson.

Hamlin looked like superman at the last of the race but he had new tires. He finished over 4 seconds back. Would have been 6 seconds back if Harvick didn't light foot it the final lapHe gained half a second over 17 laps. Harvick coasted the final lap behind Cody Ware. The difference was pretty small.
Hamlin probably had the fastest car but that team is guaranteed a penalty every race.
For better or worse I've been a Harvick fan since 2001. 10 years ago I never would have dreamed he could be knocking on 60s door in the cup series. At this point, it's all just gravy imo.I'd still like to see him get to 60, but if this was the last one, well, it was nice to see he could still get one done.
Everything is there for him and an HMS driver has dominated the sport the last 30 years.The first two years with Chase, I was extremely skeptical about him going anywhere tbh.

In conversations with friends, I've always seen Chase with the potential to be like Tony Stewart, and Larson with the potential to be like Jeff Gordon career statistics wise.
Of course as you mentioned, that thought doesn't always work out quite like we think. Thats the beauty of the sport though. One year you win 10 races and a championship, the next you win 1 race and struggle all season. Who knows whats on the horizon. For all we know Ty Gibbs could be the next 7 time. For all we know this could be harvicks last win.
But yeah, to say Chase has no shot at passing Busch is a little wonky. Especially with all the advantages that Chase has now that KDB didn't have at the beginning of his career.
Full disclosure: im not saying Chase is better or even close to KDB, he's not. He does have a better shot at a fulfilling career however. Just like Petty winning 200 races. Does that make petty better than KDB? Better than JJ? Better than Pearson, Dale Sr.? I surely don't think so. Careers are determined not only by driving skill but by the circumstances of which those talents were displayed. And arguably, Chase has the best circumstances out of all of them aside from JJ and Petty. Well, for now anyway. We will see when this new wave of drivers come in.
