It took me months to finally differentiate the difference between learning to express myself vs. Impressing people.
It’s still a learning process, but I am gradually starting to take in what in the lesson, apply it to my life, then express it through my own experience, instead of regurgitating it as a motivational quote to others.
My problem is, as soon as I read or see something worthwhile, my first thought is to share it with people.
And more of then not, I am too concerned with writing or saying things I think people want to hear instead of what they need to hear, the TRUTH, no matter how uncomfortable it makes them feel.
Because what I fail to say can end up robbing someone who really needs to hear it.
Bottom line is, Truth should not be comprised!
I can’t expect to make a difference in other people’s lives if I keep focusing on impressing them.
I realized that’s the only way I can be authentic and grow in maturity.
