It never fails. Every single time I elevate myself… think a little too much of who I am or what I’ve done… I crash and burn. Every.single.time.
Honestly, I don’t always intend to think more highly of myself than I ought. Most times I stumble into it. Before I realize where I am, though, I’m usually all the way in.
About the time that I think I’m all that and the bag of chips to go with it, I begin to self-destruct. Typically a huge eruption, where it all hits the fan, comes first and then the self-destruction ends with hours of the ugly cry.
Part of stepping down, for me, is learning to step down and out of situations in which I find myself thinking a little too much of who I am or what I’ve done. It’s easier to step down than to crash and burn… less painful too.
