The bad habit of self doubt

It’s a bit like – or actually – it’s exactly the attempt to erase the first correct answer, to write down a second best, a third guess … likely later sentenced as an “incorrect” response. Why? Because attempts at a “good” impression will always be trumped by the truth – however imperfect it might seem in the shadow of your self-criticism. How crippling this generator of social awkwardness, janitor of insecurity. How long will you allow its diminishing halt to what is truly yours to share?
