In kindergarten we wanted to be like those who went to Primary school.
In Primary 2 we thought those in Primary 6 were beyond cool.
In Primary 6, we couldn't wait to wear the different coloured uniform we would don the following year.
In Form 1 we wanted to be promoted to Form 3 (cos they knew so much more than us).
In Form 3, Form 5 was the place to be (cos then we could start driving).
In college, it seemed like even the cleaning lady knew more than me. Actually she did.
Then disaster struck.
In my final year of uni, it was... it seemed... that the juniors knew more than me!
It never stops. It will never stop. Everyone seems to know more than the next person. Everyone else seems to have had experiences you haven't had. Everyone else seems to have a more superior view and opinion to the way things should be run. It gets quite overwhelming knowing that you do not know so much. So how do we get out of this horrible destructive cycle of being shown up for what we do not know?
By admitting. Confidence is hardly about pretending to know what you don't know.
By learning. Humility and Confidence go hand-in-hand; are you humble enough to ask? Are you confident in yourself enough to learn?
By asking, "Teach me?"
The tables are turned.
