I’m starting to notice how much I speak, and how little I should. Sometimes it is easier to just listen. A lot of the time, when I should be listening, I catch myself waiting for my turn to speak. Now I realize, I’m always waiting for my turn, probably because my pent up anxiety and my ego can’t handle everyone in the room not knowing what a great fucking thinker I can be. So now, I’m listening.
I used to think that you are who you are and you’re stuck with that person, whether you like that person or not. But now I know the truth. You can be whoever you want to be… If you are so willing. We all have the ability to adapt. Screw this person, who do you want to be? Be that. Adapt, and become the best version of yourself.
I wish it was as easy as waking up in the morning. But these days even that is hard. I’ve been sleeping too late and waking up too early. But I don’t feel useless anymore.
