Tell us one habit of yours which makes you Thankful-Todays Prompt
How many times have you been misled when you asked for directions, because the person giving them to you didn’t know them but was too afraid/egoistic to say, ‘I don’t know’
How many times have you, or someone you know, missed a chance at something because you didn’t know, but were too afraid to say so?
Today I am thankful that I never shy away from saying, ‘I don’t know’, when I don’t.
Except for Google, and mother-in-laws, there is hardly any person in this world who knows it all, but there are many who think they do. Saying you do not know something/of something is considered a sign of weakness and foolishness, for most. So people fumble through life, sometimes missing opportunities while other times following others or directions that may not lead them where they want to go.
As for me, I believe that when I am honest enough to say, ‘I don’t know’ I learn, and that is how I grow.
