This is a part of my personality that I battle with regularly. I constantly question my knowledge, intelligence and interpretation of information. I also worry that my opinion on something is going to upset people and they will get pissed off at constantly hearing me go on about something. It’s always in context I might add, I don’t bring things up randomly.
A constant lesson I am trying to teach myself is that if I am passionate about something, I have done my research and formed a valid opinion, then I should give that opinion and not be worried about who it upsets, if anyone. I also shouldn’t care if people get annoyed by it, again, if it’s something I feel passionate about and I know I am informed and not just spouting off, then I should have courage in what I am saying. I need to remember, that conflicting thoughts aren’t there to stop me having an opinion. I am always so quick to blame myself in a situation and I need to knock that on the head once and for all. I want to make sure Leo never sees that side of me, I don’t want him to fear rejection because of an opinion. I want him to understand that the people who walk away because of your valid and well informed opinion, were never destined to be a part of your world anyway, so nothing lost!
