First things first, YOU are ENOUGH! Bottom, base-line FACT.
When I was a kid. I would get completely bent out of shape when I felt misunderstood.
I felt is was my job to communicate clearly and be understood.
What I’ve learned over my nutty journey in life is that sometimes, even with the best of intentions, I will not always be seen, heard or understood.
AND THAT IS OK!
I’ve learned to say screw it!
If you can’t see and hear me that’s data for me.
Perhaps It‘s wasn’t the right time, or maybe my words or message don’t resonate with that person or group.
That’s actually FABULOUS!
What used to spiral me into negative thought-loops and gnaw at my confidence trying to figure out WHY I didn’t get it right,
is no longer my burden to carry.
Sure I care that I am communicating with intent and clarity – that’s my end of the street to keep clean;
But there is another side to it. It takes two to tango as they say!
Why waste precious time on not being seen or heard by the wrong people?
Isn’t it time to own YOU?
To focus your precious time and energy on those that actually feel the connection. And that is enough!
