There are some moments when we are down and we don’t believe in ourselves, we don’t believe that we can do better and this is a barrier that our mind creates, we create our barriers with our mind and put ourselves in a conscious state of underestimation of our values and capacity that we can have.
The key to opening this gate and letting the light go in is the moment of change when we let all these barriers fall and let ourselves be ourselves this way we can discover who we are with no fear towards others.
My story is quite simple but helped me a lot to grow as a person. When I was a high school student, I was an extremely shy person and in a group of people, I would never be able to speak up and rather hide in the crowd.
However, once I entered the university, I decided to take a challenge and try myself in project leadership. It turned out amazingly good. As a team, we achieved a lot and gained different soft skills. More importantly, as local students, we managed to contribute to the education of our growing high school juniors. There I realized that bad ideas never exist and it is okay to be different sometimes as well.
Therefore, my advice to all of my shy people like me out there would be that any opinion is equally valuable, just try once and you will understand it yourself.
