Growing up……… I was the kinda gurl who would get an F on my school work and report card before I would ask the teacher to explain and go over the assignment with me. I was too shy, and didn\’t want to feel \”dumb\” because I didn\’t understand. I would stare in horror as the others picked up their pen and pencils to begin their assignment. I would pick up mines too, drift off mentally and wish that I could disappear because I \”felt\” so stupid.

But Thank God for Jesus!!!!!!!!!!! ( laughing)
I dont know what day it was that I came out of it, but Thank you Jesus I\’m not that same person today.
One day I realized that everybody was finding out the things that they wanted and needed to know, but I was the one who didn\’t know jack! I never asked questions, I would always put somebody up to it for me.
Till God started putting me in situations that I needed to speak up for myself, or ask the questions for myself because no one else was with me. I never wanted to go places alone because of this.
All my life I wanted to be either a Lawyer, or an interrogator. But I guess you know in those careers you need to be able to communicate and ask questions. Well, I couldn\’t be either one of those because of my shyness and self esteem.
Today, I ask so many question……………its a shame! lol Its so funny to me, because when I tell people how I use to be they dont believe me, because of how outspoken and to the point I am. I dont hurt people\’s feelings, I just wanna know the truth!!!!! I want to get to the bottom of any situation.
Let give yall an example: If my gurl call me and say \”Lacrease guess who I just saw at the gas station (she lives her in Detroit so I hear this a lot\”? I would say who gurl who? Anita Baker!!!!
Here are my questions:
- Where was she at
- What she have on
- What did she say
- Who was she with
- What time was this
- What kinda car she have
- What was she doing
- Who was she talking too\’
- Did anybody say anything to her?
- Was she acting funny?
- Was she with her kids (noticed I already asked this question but in a different way)
Yes, that is me. and people that know me, knows that I will ask these questions inside of 3 minutes. They get soooooooooooo mad at me, and say dangggggggg I shouldn\’t have never told you that! lol I MAKE THEM ANSWER EVERY QUESTION TO MY SATISFACTION. LOL
The reason why I ask this question is because the bible says: 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 1 Corinthians 13:11 (King James Version)
Share something that you USE to do that could have held you back in life, but you put away childish things.
