Sometimes it is #difficult
to admit when you’re not good at something. You can find yourself making #excuses
or saying things / making #promises
in which you don’t act upon.
are just words, and although people have good intentions - without #action
you cause a reoccurring problem for yourself, and whomever is involved in the action with you.
Guess what? Things don’t have to remain the way they are, and after a certain age - blame and excuses for things you may have experienced that helped mold your thinking - are no longer valid.
Old dogs can learn new tricks, and you can continually learn and grow.
Confession: I used to be awful at communicating in general, and would clam up and experience fear and #anxiety
so I was the quiet guy.
Although I have gotten extremely better with that over the years, I still lacked in effectively communicating about the way I feel, and feelings in general - in particular with something that would create conflict with someone I care about (although avoiding difficult conversations or conflict, unintentionally creates more conflict). Although I am still far from good at that: I realize that, can admit that, and not only just say it - but try to do something to learn about it, and how I can be better at it.
If you’ve ever experienced anything similar, you don’t have to let pride, #fear
etc. hold you back.
Realization, some words are ok, but ultimately followed with #action
(and not solely words). #trailertotriumph #difficultconversations
