This is Peanut Butter Brickle. It’s true that some of us may need no introductions. True.
But some of us aforementioned have decided that as we get older, we do want to introduce ourselves. We do want others to know our story.
And yet, I’m not sure when that exactly happened for me.
One day, I was growling and defensive of everything and everyone. Including myself. Then one other day, it happened. I wanted to say hello to strangers. I wanted to be seen. I wanted to be heard.
I wanted to introduce myself. Because I should be recognized. And so should you.
As we get older, we may think we don’t have as much to offer. We may think that no one sees our value. But for others to see our value, we have to see it first. And when I finally realized that, I became more confident. More outgoing. More. Me.
Its a special thing to learn about ourselves. Talk to others. Tell them your story. ￼Listen for yourself. It’s a good one.
