Encourage

Hi, Hey, Hello!

This word stumped me. In a big way. I don’t really know how to approach it.

Encouragement is not necessarily something that I seek in life. I tend to just kind of keep my head down and go about my business. That may not be the best thing to do, but for whatever reason it is the thing that I do.

I mean I’m fairly decent at encouraging other people to do shit.

I am very good at not doing that whole practice what you preach thing. I spew a lot of shit but then promptly tend to ignore my own advice.

It doesn’t really take a genius to figure out why I do that.

I get way too far into my own head and convince myself that I’m not good enough no matter what people around me may think. I’ve basically convinced myself that all of those people are liars and that they should really be more careful with their advice because they shouldn’t tell lies.

I guess therein lies the problem.

I need to start working on that whole self belief thing a bit more. I need to start actually listening to people when they say things that could actually be considered words of encouragement and not just dismiss them and file them away in the back of my mind pretending that they never happened and in turn fuel that voice that spews all the bad shit.

That’s my takeaway from this actually now that I sit and think about it. I need to be better at listening to encouragement, because I dish it out just fine but can never seem to take it…

Parentheses count: 0. See you tomorrow!
