I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have. For me “risky” is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.
The reason why it is absolutely essential to praise the good in others is not just to boost up their morale or confidence. But also because most people simply do not believe or even realize that they are any good or they can make any difference. Your words could be the very push they have been waiting for, your gentle encouragement could be the gust of air that forces their wings to take flight. Do not flatter excessively, but always remember to mention and encourage the good in those around you. The positivity will also do your own soul a world of good!
