Knowing You’re RightOctober 22nd
Do you think you’re smart, think you know more than most people? Do you often find yourself biting your tongue when uninformed people spouting nonsense about subjects they seem to know nothing about? Well then, you are on your way to wisdom!
Wisdom takes more than knowledge and learning, it takes confidence in yourself. a truly wise person is one who not only knows the right answer but is sure of it, is not only right, but righteous.
While, yes, an increase in knowledge doesn’t automatically lead to an increase in confidence- they do lend each other strength.
This doesn’t mean that you should be telling people off or correcting them all the time- part of wisdom is, of course, knowing when to speak out. But what it does mean is that you shouldn’t feel ashamed or out-of-place because you know more than your friends- that would just be unwise.
