We often feel that we need to put on a “face” or have “airs and graces” when we communicate with others. Just be yourself and be natural. That comes across so clearly when you communicate with others and they can feel it when you are authentic.
A quote by Eleanor Roosevelt that I love “Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you will be criticized anyway.”
We are all human and we all make mistakes so don’t let that stop you from being yourself. That’s the way you were made and that’s what makes you so special.
Sometimes when I am disappointed because I have made a mistake I normally try to think of a quote I once saw that said “I’ve learned so much from my mistakes that I am thinking I will make a few more.” This makes me smile and I feel a bit better.
We are all human – and we ALL make mistakes. If you are genuine and true, trust me people will understand that and your lines of communication will open right up. Try it!
