Who am I to say these things?
What will they think of me?
Is this pretentious?
Am I good enough?
Think about the greats of the past. Do you think they didn’t ask themselves these questions? Or do you think there weren’t people who said “look at so-and-so, how pretentious!”? Their human traits are long gone now, but their contributions are timeless, because they spoke their truth.
Speak up then, if you feel it true. It’d be selfish to keep it for yourself.
