Why Is Competition Hindering Our Learning?

June 15, 2021


It’s been a while since I sat in a class and started learning something new. It’s been a while since I sat in a class and felt like the teacher was speaking a different language (and they aren’t). It’s hard to admit when we don’t understand something. It’s a challenge for me to be less competitive in a learning environment and take a step back so that I can give myself the space I need to learn. My competitive nature was impeding my ability to learn and grow and so I needed to take a look and re-evaluate what actually was going on.

Here’s what I mean…

I love you. I hope you have a wonderful day. XOXOX, CAMDW

You Can Stop Explaining Yourself Now And Here’s Why

As long as I’ve been alive I’ve required an explanation. How did you come to be? Why? How did it work? Was that hard for you? Did you ever want your family to be different? And don’t get me wrong, I don’t actually mind the questions, I just have realized that I am very used […]
