While studying for my speech midterm I ran across a quote that got me thinking.
"You may see yourself as shy because when you were a child your parents, relatives, and teachers told you so. In later life, this may no longer be as true, yet you may still cling to an outdated view of self."
- J. Dan Rothwell
How often do we cling to outdated views of ourselves? I know I do. Sometimes those outdated views can hold you back from accepting who you have become, because we are so stuck on who we use to be.
