“One of the best things a teacher ever did for me was say “I don’t know the answer to that but I’ll do some research.” It modeled a more honest intellectual discourse. You don’t have to pretend like you know everything & you don’t always need to have or share an immediate opinion.” — Clint Smith
We see a lot of pressure in our culture to give the impression we already know everything. Pressure to never be wrong.
It can be so easy to freeze up, hold back, based on the fear of getting it wrong.
I will always do my best to learn. If I get it wrong, I will learn from it and do my best to make it right. Let us continue to normalize imperfection and the ability to change our minds when presented with more information.
Sending you love,
