I know you know but you keep quiet to keep the peace. I know you know because you’re an observer which has served you well.
Respect your mind and the unique ways that it does its thing. If you stayed quiet, trust that you stayed quiet for a reason. If you spoke up, trust that you spoke up for a reason but don’t belittle yourself for the choice you made. It is not okay to insult your own intelligence.
But that’s not what I wanted to say. I wanted to say, it’s ok to know. It’s ok to express that you know. This doesn’t mean you’ll never be wrong or that you’re way is the only right way. It does mean that you’re allowed to know things. You’re allowed to be smart and well read and skilled at something that others are not.
For some reason the world likes only certain types of people to know things. It’s quite strange to me that we limit genius to a small portion of our population.
Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
