On Shame and Humility
Somewhere along the way, shame and humility got twisted up.
As if you have to put yourself down in order to be humble.
We self-deprecate to show how 'real' we are. And that's only on the outside. On the inside we're our own worst critic. The nagging voice that never quits.
It's a tool we use to push ourselves to greater achievements. Shame keeps us from getting complacent.
But what if there were a better way?
A way to say, "My best is enough; I am enough...
...and I can continue to be more."
A way to leave out all the head chatter; the proving and defending; the endless self-doubt.
"Thank you. Next."
