(16.4) Courage: Looking Stupid


It’s amazing how many people will not raise their hands or asks the questions they need to know because they fear to look like an idiot, and by all means I’m the exact way. No one wants to be that person. No one wants to be label as the local idiot, it degrading and humiliating, especially if people make a fuss about it. It just shuts you off completely from ever wanting to know more about anything.

But if we do that we’re just falling deeper into that rabbit hole. And it just becomes this cycle of not wanting to look dumb, so we don’t ask the necessary questions, then we remain ignorant.

All in all, it’s bad news bears. A messed up situation.

Then there are times when we finally get the courage to ask, and we are completely ridiculed like that’s totally unnecessary, why can’t people accept the notion that we all know different things and don’t have access to the same line of information. Why can’t it be common to just help and answer the question? Because there really isn’t any need to make a scene.

The more I think about it, the more frustrated I get, no one should be afraid to pursue a greater understanding of the concepts and world around you, you should be free to ask! Yet those jerks ruin the fun in learning.

But at the end of the day, don’t be afraid to be that idiot, who cares what other’s will think because your pursuit for knowledge should be the top priority, and ultimately it’s you who is growing, who’s learning. So nurture yourself, and raise that hand!


Apparently, I’m a lot more passionate about this topic than I was expecting.

Anywho, until next time! See you tomorrow!
