‘I am not good at learning new languages.’
‘I am terrible at keeping in touch with old friends.’
‘I am incapable of reading a non-fiction book.’
‘I am a horrible negotiator.’
‘I cannot speak well in public.’
‘I do not deserve the credit I have earned.’
Some of the things we say out loud turns us into the best lawyers for our limitations. If so, what chance do our better selves have?
When we fight for our limitations, we get to keep them.
