Overcoming Timidity

I think we are all scared to really be vulnerable.

I think that we are all too scared to really let people know who we really are because we are afraid of judgment.

I think we are all afraid of being transparent because we cannot take rejection.

I think that we need to be stronger than this.

We were all created for a purpose. We were all created for a reason, whether you like that statement or not, it’s a true fact. You were created to impact lives, whether that be in small ways or in large ways, but how are we suppose to do such things with such a timid spirit?

Stephen Medina Photography

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.”

2 Timothy 1:7-8

Personally, I am tired of feeling like I can not speak out what my heart feels. I mean, really speak out, not just saying I am a Christian and that I love Jesus. I am referring to being one hundred percent transparent and vulnerable. Sharing my scars and my victories with others so that others can see the possibility of real growth in trials. I am tired of the timidness of women and men who aspire to do great things but can’t seem to get the strength to actually do it.

Everyone has their story. Everyone has their scars, their failures, their fears, their hopes, and their dreams. Everyone is passionate about something; whether that be about themselves or about their job, or about a dream they aspire to accomplish. The feeling of passion is real, but so is the feeling of fear.

Rejection is real. Pain is real. Fear is real. But so is the possibility of impacting another person’s life.

This world is not in a healthy state. There really is no time for timidness. I so badly want to inspire other’s to push past these emotions and go for the win.

Helping other’s become vulnerable, transparent, and taking their weaknesses and becoming strong is something that I am passionate about. There is no need to be afraid of rejection, you are so loved and adored already.

Everyone is already being quiet. Why not do something different? Is it because you’re afraid you’ll be different? Good. Be different.

You could change the course of somebody’s life if you wanted to, or you could stay being afraid of offending someone.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
