The future is… Emotionally Intelligent.
I’m going to give myself the gift of honesty in the future. To begin, emotional intelligence is a scary idea sometimes because it implies getting over self-doubt and being willing to express, and even celebrate, our defects. Things become confusing when we state publicly an area of personal difficulty. I feel sad. I feel angry. I don’t like myself in the area of self-expression. Perhaps saying, “I am weak” is the hardest thing for a modern day creative thinker to admit to. Could it be that we are afraid to say that we do not know something? I am not an expert in many areas. I am afraid to say what I do not love. I am afraid of not loving the future.
As much as I would like to say that I am an alien from another dimension full of nothing but pure love, it pains me to say that maybe I am just another Earthling hoping to be seen and understood while I explore the mysteries of my own heart. I will continue to struggle with emotional intelligence in the future but be willing to work through it openly, to ultimately be a resource for my fellow beings.
