The stigma around topics such as failure, ignorance, inexperience makes us hide the very same seed that would allow us to grow. We do not ask the question, we do not show the weakness, we do not seek guidance. Eventually we end up being the same, if not diminished.
We are more silent when we should be more vocal.
And on the other hand, we are met with silence when we should be cheered loudly.
How often do you share just to meet an embarrassed withdraw? How often do you ask just to meet an awkward silence? How often do you open up just to meet shameful rejection?
Everything is dull and easy on the surface.
It is when you go deep, and allow the others to go deep, that things start getting interesting.
