Explaining yourself is time consuming and unnecessary – Temi Otedola Shares
Temi Otedola has shared why she thinks that people should never bother explaining themselves to others.
A lot of times, people find it necessary to explain their actions to others so as not to get misjudged or misunderstood. However, a lot of times, your explanations do so little in changing people’s perception of you.
According to Temi, explaining yourself is time-consuming, as some people have already decided who you are and nothing you do will change that, so it’s best to reserve your energy for something more productive.
Explaining yourself is time-consuming as some people have already decided who you are and nothing you do will change that hence save your energy and don’t waste your time explaining yourself to people who aren’t ready to change their view about you.
I try to enter interactions without judgment but not everybody will do the same. That’s okay. The only person you have to prove yourself to is yourself.
