I was young and stupid!
People have a lot of emotional baggage from their past.
Stupid things they have done.
Opportunities they have missed.
Things they should have said and shouldn’t have said.
Relationships they should’ve or shouldn’t have started.
Business opportunities they should have or should not have done.
Investment opportunities they should have or should not have past on.
And so on and so forth…
And they feel regrets, guilt, shame, remorse and it’s all a diarrhea of the brain.
And the way I deal with this is to say.
Yeah, I was young and stupid!
I am a work in progress!
I will always be a work in progress!
I will be young and stupid till my last day, alright?
For someone who is young and stupid, it’s OK and has the right to make mistakes.
Somebody who is so mature and smart, like I am supposed to be, “damn, I can’t expect to do such stupid things”
But for that young and stupid person, that’s normal, that’s acceptable.
So I officially say and declare to myself unto the world.
That up until a minute ago, I was younger and stupider than I am right now.
And that’s what counts.
For me to know that I am a work in progress.
When you are working from a place of calmness, as you’ve heard me sharing so many times, there is space for creativity.
