They're always surprised that I'm terrified, "But you LOOK completely calm and collected and you handled them really well..."
and I'll say, "But I thought I really lost it with Dragon C. I rose to the bait and argued with him about x, y, and z."
And they'll get all wide-eyed, "But Dragon C was utterly unreasonable and I thought you did great getting what he really needed out of him and following up."
And I'll blink, "But... uhm... oh." Silence for a bit, "Thank you for the feedback, it's good for me to know when I did well."
"You did great."
I'm STILL terrified, but I did great.
Life is weird, sometimes...
