Self-Judgement is For The Sidelines

It’s so easy to stop ourselves from doing what we want because we judge ourselves so fast. 

We start judging ourselves the second we want to do something out of the ordinary. 

It’s too weird. It won’t work. Will others like it? I don’t want to be judged.

Let me put this another way: How do you know when the temperature of your shower is ready?

You don’t go all in, but you test it.

There’s no better way to put your self-judgement to the side than to try it out.

Prove yourself wrong and let others know that it’s good to be wrong too. 

By putting your own judgement on the sidelines, you can play, pilot, and have fun.


Making Connections For The Quiet and Timid

You’re a wallflower, I’m a wallflower. Let’s talk at the networking party together. 

It’s okay to feel uncomfortable forming new connections—thousands of others feel uncomfortable in the same situations too. You’re not alone! 

Here are some easy things to say when we have to warm up to strangers in a room. It’s always better (and more comfortable) to hear them talk first. 

  • What brings you here? 
  • What do you do? 
  • Tell me more, please! 
  • Let’s keep in touch?
  • These 4-worded phrases will be your key to open up countless diverse and rich conversations to each new relationship.


    Our Extremely Human Superpower

    If there’s one thing I wish to see more of in the world, it would be kindness. 

    The small-voiced community are the utmost experts on kindness because we’ve been gentle creatures all our lives, with rooted desire to find more people just like us.

    We thrive off finding personal moments of blissfulness. We stick together and give a helping hand to those who need it. We empathize quickly and are an introspective species.

    Though our voices may be small (and sometimes unheard), kindness is our super power.
