- You make yourself vulnerable.
- You let people know more about you than perhaps you really should.
- You could find yourself facing bizarre questions or comments from colleagues.
- You question your sanity.
- You may experience regret.
- You get feedback.
But each of these downsides has an upside:
- You make yourself vulnerable and thus open to real human interaction.
- You let people know more about you than perhaps you really should and therefore become honest with those around you.
- You could find yourself facing bizarre questions or comments from colleagues, so you learn to handle yourself with grace.
- You question your sanity and realize that you’re not insane after all.
- You may experience regret, but it usually passes quickly.
- You get feedback, which is what you want after all!
I wish there were a “love this post” option.
So true. I’m particularly struck with the first idea – make yourself vulnerable to thus open up real human interaction. I ask myself this every day and wonder why it’s easy for some people but always feels like a risk to me.
And wow, learning to be graceful rather than awkward. I wish I knew the way. 🙂
maybe it just happens as you get older 😉 thanks Mike.
