Day 3312: People’s responses

In the past, I’ve sometimes been hesitant to say or do something for fear of people’s responses. The responses I’ve feared have included:

  • anger,
  • disinterest,
  • new upsetting information,
  • misunderstandings,
  • hurt feelings,
  • needless worry,
  • judgment,
  • more work for me,
  • disconnection, and
  • no response at all.

I continually work on the courage to say and do what’s important without fear of people’s responses.

I wonder what people’s responses will be to today’s images:

I wonder what people’s responses will be to today’s National Days? And I assume that people’s responses to Michael’s first attempt at banana bread would be similar to mine: “OMG! This is so delicious!”

This is the first thing that pops up on YouTube when I search for “people’s responses”:

It helps me to know about other people’s responses to non-responsiveness.

No matter what people’s responses are, I’m grateful for you, every day!

Day 3225: What scares you?

What scares you, on this day before Halloween, 2021?

What scares you in today’s images?

Enemies scare me and, honestly, so does candy corn.

What scares me is how scared I can become about so many things. What helps is knowing I have survived so many things that scare me.

When I searched YouTube for “what scares you?” I found What Scares Me That Doesn’t Scare You.

I hope leaving a comment doesn’t scare you.

I am grateful for everything that doesn’t scare me, including YOU.
