7. People don’t notice you nearly as much as you think.
I’ve always wrestled with self-consciousness. If you’re taller or smarter or wear different clothes, kids pick on you. But I’ve learned that most adults are so busy with their own insecurities that they don’t often see yours. And if they do notice, they’re likely to forgive those faults because they’re keenly aware of their own.
And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you…—I Thessalonians 4:11
