Some of the best ideas I have had come when I discuss ideas with others. Sharing improves on the original. Why do so many of us hide and hoard our ideas then, as though they are gold and prone to theft by dragons, dwarves or hobbits?
Ideas are free, I remind myself. Only the execution matters.
By the same token, why do so many of us hide and hoard our feelings and our desires? Fear of being rejected, of being wrong, of being laughed at, perhaps? Fear of getting what we want and not deserving it.
I suggest sharing what we have and asking for more. Hoarding may work for dragons but we are more sociable, aren’t we? (Plus look at what happened to Smaug in the end.)
Share. Ask for more.
