Good morning, lovely people! I’ve been lurking on this forum for a while now, but every time I think I’ve got something to contribute, I’m flooded with self doubt and decide not to. My mind screams all kinds of mean things to me. “No one wants to hear what you have to say,” it tells me. “You’re better off just keeping your mouth shut.” And so it goes on any public-posting-website (and many in-person interactions, too, but I just have less time to change my mind through verbal communication.) I just feel stupid, like what I have to say is probably not important or helpful, or at least not anything new that someone else hasn’t already figured out. I know the awesome community on this forum would probably have the decency to not point out if I’ve said such a thing, but I guess I just never figured out how to climb that Wall.
Can anyone else relate? How do you overcome it?
