The fear of asking
Internal adult reasons:
- Not qualified enough
- Not ready
- Being blamed for it later on
- Non-mutual feelings
- Family won't accept
- Giving up what we think we know about ourselves
- Not being able to live up to the other person's expectations
Recently, children had fun asking me questions they knew the answer to (taught by their parents).
I watched as a little boy threw his bicycle down, hop on, and start riding furiously.
I asked him if has a helmet.
He said yeah.
I told him always wear a helmet.
He said OK! I watched as he ran home, put on his green mo-hawk helmet, and hop back on his bike.
With a childish heart, I asked, do you remember when your parent's were the most proud of you?
