Have you ever felt like there is something someone needs to say to you? What keeps us from saying what it is we want to say to others? Speaking for myself it is most often always fear. But, what are we afraid of? All someone can do is reply. But it is the reply that leads to consequence and consequences are sometimes hard to bear. So our fear si inspired by an unwanted outcome. So time becomes our ally. If I wait long enough you might give me the answer without the question. But how much time will you have wasted waiting on answer that if:
a) is what you wanted you could have been enjoying a positive outcome all this time.
b) is not what you wanted then you have simply prolonged dealing with the negative consequence thereby causing more time convincing yourself risks are worth taking.
A good friend once told me that risks were necessary. And, you’ll never understand unless you take them.
