This month I am posting about risk, and words that contribute to the risks I take in my life!
I is for Inadequacy. This is probably a confusing one to fit with my theme. I somewhat just needed an I word, and then also thought about the result of risks. Inadequacy came up. Sometimes I don't risk because I don't feel like I can do it. Whatever the dream, goal, or situation is I feel like I am not good enough to accomplish it. I feel pretty inadequate.
I used to think that I was the only one who felt this way. Why I was so naive to think that is beyond me, but I sure did. I thought that I was the only one who doubted myself and my choices.
We often have to risk feeling inadequate to live a more adventure-filled life. Letting down those walls, being willing to risk not knowing everything. We live in a society that is driven by success. Driven by social media accounts that claim perfect lives. When in reality for one moment if we all just allowed our inadequacies to be seen, the world would connect in so many more real and deep ways.
To risk inadequacy means to understand ourselves and those around us a little bit more. We will never be perfect, but our imperfections are what makes us needed and loved.
