We love talking about the things we are good at. Very few talk about the real shit that fucks with us- the stuff we hide from everyone. We try to mask it by lifting weights, making more money, buying more possessions, etc. It’s there in the insecurities, fear, lies and self-doubt that we find our real self. There and only there do you grow.
Don’t be afraid of people judging you- fuck them! A lot of people can’t handle the truth about themselves, trust me, I know. I struggled with that for many years. Own your shit! Those people you are trying to impress have just as many issues as you do, they just hide it better than you do.
Stop trying to impress others! Worry only about impressing yourself!
