Stop explaining yourself!

For a long time I have had the habit of feeling the need to explain and justify my words and actions. No more. I am learning that my words and my actions can stand alone. I don’t need to explain them and I don’t even think that it helps. Explaining can often look a lot like excuses and people don’t want to hear excuses. Own your words and your actions, let them explain for themselves. Be strong. You don’t owe anyone an explanation.
