Sometimes it is better to be not so smart at first because you can say that there is a room for improvement and opportunity to help other people in the future…
Am not good in English but i know i can do something about it.. And when that time comes, i know i can use it in a better way which is to inspire other people that once upon a time i am also nobody in speaking or writing in english.
This is also applicable in general, if you’ve been there it is easy for you to share your stories and lift other people that currently experiencing your past situation. Share your experience and/or pain as your example to other people so they can be healed emotionally. That is why getting smarter is better because your character and attitude is shaped to be a possible successful mentor in the fure. Cheer up! Get Smarter everyday!
