Trying to get it right.
Now, I am here to tell you it is okay to do it over and
nothing wrong with doing it again.
What a waste, putting all of your time and energy into getting it right.
Focused on saying the right things rather than just
saying what you have to say.
Countless hours, wondering what people are saying or
thinking about you.
People do not think.
At least not about you.
They are not thinking of you.
Dr. Seuss, reminds us of
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
The thoughts of people judging or being critical of you
will keep you immobilize.
I can attest to it. For years, I could not make decisions
and move forward because
they had to be the right decisions.
I was so terrified of getting it wrong or making a
mistake, that I did nothing.
That was the biggest mistake of them all.
I repeatedly ran down the playlist of all my past failures
Hearing the corrective voices of my parents regarding
my life, my choices, and my decisions.
