I've noticed that overt 'intelligence'/ know-it-all behavior is often used to mask internal emptiness.
I will not deny but that the best apology against false accusers is silence and sufferance, and honest deeds set against dishonest words.
Don't focus on trying to be 'the best'. Focus on being irreplaceable.
Yeah. I mean, acknowledging is easy. Something happened or it didn't. But understanding... that's where things get sticky.
If you can't see the assets in you, it will be hard for you to export it to the world. Recognise who you are and the world will recognise you.
If you are in crisis of who you are and your self-image, then everything is going to be distorted because of one crisis that hasn’t been resolved.
