I’m learning how important it is to share. It’s only when we share, that we can gain valuable insight and encouragement from those who are willing to reciprocate. It does mean being vulnerable, but this is a risk that I’m willing to take.
We all have insecurities. At least I’m assuming I’m not the only one. One of the things I struggle with is socializing. Maybe you haven’t picked up on it, but it can definitely be a challenge for me, particularly small talk. It hasn’t always come so naturally to me, so I can second guess the comments that I’ve left on my fellow bloggers posts. If you’ve ever wondered about me, well, I wonder about me too. (Haha) I wonder too much.
I mean well when I leave a comment, but at times I’m sure that my awkward comments may come out in a way that I never intended. Or maybe I’m just over analyzing.
I’ve sort of lived in a bubble, so when I look at the diversity here on WordPress, I can feel way out of my comfort zone. Conversing with new people, especially people from totally different backgrounds, is very daunting to me. I’m pushing myself to do more of it, anyways. So I apologize in advance if I put my foot in my mouth.
I click with certain people automatically, while others intimidate the life out of me. It’s not usually them. It’s mostly my own insecurities. I’m learning, however, that when you step across the line, some will step across that line too. Others may never respond. Then there are those who come out of nowhere and become your very dear, and very best friends.
I’m an introspective, introverted writer at heart, whose a bit of a bumbling social networking butterfly. However, I’m also stubbornly for change and progress. So please bear with me as I continue to learn how to flit past my comfort zone.
The one thing I do have going for me is that when I lack confidence I’m reminded that my confidence comes from my Lord Jesus who qualifies the unqualified and gives them everything they need to do as He wants. (Hebrews 13:20-21) I’ll get there!
Enjoy your weekend!
What about you? What challenges your comfort zone?
