Don't be afraid to ask
If we do not ask questions, how can we learn.
If we say 'Yes, I understand' when we really don't, who are we fooling?
Not understanding is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign that we are willing to learn.
Our lives are short, we need to continue to learn throughout them. For in this way, we not only learn about the world around us, but we also learn much about ourselves.
So if you don't know, instead of pretending that you do, be honest. You will gain more respect from saying so.
The reply of 'I don't know, but I will try and find out.' is far better than simply shrugging your shoulders and walking away or pretending that you know when you don't.
So don't be afraid to ask, don't be afraid to admit that you don't know. Don't be afraid to learn and grow.
