“Teach thy tongue to say, “I do not know,” and thous shalt progress.”
One of the traits I most admire in a fellow human being is when that person can admit when they don’t know something. It’s a demonstration of deep personal strength. An example of their unyielding courage. An expression of their desire to learn from those around them.
Yes, it’s difficult to admit, but when you do, an amazing thing happens; you learn and grow as a person. It’s a beautiful thing to witness. In my own life, I try to admit when I’m clueless whether that admission is met with snarky expressions or heartfelt encouragement, I do it.
Because it’s my mission to learn throughout my life. To cram as much knowledge and experience in my brain box, so long as it can hold it. If I don’t know, it stirs my curiosity. It drives me to learn. It propels me to enhance my personal growth. It’s never a bad thing.
Be brave and learn. You’ll be surprised by the outcome.
