One of the greatest assets humans can have or develop is to foster a sense of curiosity and figuring things out.
Not knowing doesn’t make us stupid. But being willing to learn makes us wise.
I recently spent time with someone who would get so frustrated not understanding or knowing something. “Where was I in school, why didn’t I learn that? I am so dumb!” She referred to things I don’t know the answers to either, but I don’t feel dumb because I know I am not supposed to know everything.
The world is daunting. Some people will always know things you don’t. That just means you have different knowledge and different strengths. Don’t allow others to make you feel stupid.
