We’ve all thought it. Because who wants to put on display their baggage… who wants to show their weaknesses?
I mean, what if they REALLY knew me?
I remember when I was training for a new sales job that required me to go into hospitals and doctor’s offices, my manager told me to always act like I knew what I was doing and where I was going. And honestly, that was the easiest part of the job. Because who hasn’t had to fake confidence?
I mean, just to look at me… I’m pretty tall, standing right at six feet. So all my life, I’ve gotten noticed… called out for being a head taller than the rest. Even when I didn’t always WANT the attention. Even when I didn’t always like the burden. But since I had not choice, I learned to put on a brave face; especially in those times when I wanted to run.
It happens to all of us.
No matter your job, or your height. We all face times when we wish we could simply hide. When our confidence lags, our courage up and leaves, and all we hear are the whispers of doubt echoing in our soul… maybe it’s because we’re starting something new.
– a new job
– a new relationship
– a new school
Or maybe it’s because we fell into the wrong crowd, got stuck in a cycle of bad habits, or were taken advantage of and hurt by those we thought were our friends. The simplest solution is to just build high walls on every side and never come out again.
But God doesn’t want us to live in fear.
So what changed for me?
On the Podcast:
Walling ourself off from people because we fear their rejection or opinion makes for a very lonely life. But honestly, it doesn’t quiet the whispers of doubt inside.
