Not at all, to learn and grow one needs to venture into unexplored territory right? The saying "fake it until you make it" May apply.
I think that even if i don't know what I'm talking about or even if I may make myself to look like a fool, most people love to talk about things they have mastered or enjoy or have a passion for. Asking questions is never a bad thing.
Of course. I make no attempt to say I don't wear masks, but my masks are superficial, used only to get my foot in the door. Once that first impression stage is over "what you see is what you get." I make no attempt to lie to myself or others as to my true character.
As for my opinions on people, I know people went black and white but shades of grey. But if I don't know you what you give me is all o ha e to go on right? So my judgements will be a strong black and white until we can have a genuine conversation and discuss the nuances and semantics of each other's character.
As these quotes so personify my opinionated stance on people:
“It often occurs that pride and selfishness are muddled with strength and independence. They are neither equal nor similar; in fact, they are polar opposites. A coward may be so cowardly that he masks his weakness with some false personification of power. He is afraid to love and to be loved because love tends to strip bare all emotional barricades. Without love, strength and independence are prone to losing every bit of their worth; they become nothing more than a fearful, intimidated, empty tent lost somewhere in the desert of self.”
“Don't you know that a midnight hour comes when everyone has to take off his mask? Do you think life always lets itself be trifled with? Do you think you can sneak off a little before midnight to escape this?”
