Sometimes, our self consciousness inhibits us from showing who we are to the world. But the world suffers for this as much if not more than the individual. If a teacher is afraid of judgement, he won’t be able to impart the wisdom needed for the students to grow. If a singer is afraid of judgement, they won’t be able to inspire others with their voice. If a politician is afraid of judgement, they won’t be able to make the change needed to help millions of people. Release your chains, it’s only in your mind. Remember there will always be those who criticize you, but there are more people who will praise you for being vulnerable and expressing yourself.
