It is weird to realize that a good part of what people really need is other people to cheer them on.

But this is often exactly what people need, even the mighty.

If you are not a brutal critic to yourself, then you have achieved an unhealthy level of surety.

When you know someone that needs that boost... give it to them.

Be mighty for them.

Be kind.


I wholeheartedly agree, except for one small nitpick.

I would say if you are not being a brutal critic of yourself you have a unusual or abnormal level of surety, but not necessarily unhealthy.

I actually think it's healthy to (slowly, inch by inch) soften up your internal critic, and give yourself some love.
