IF THE SHOE FITS, WEAR IT
"If the shoe fits, wear it” is a commonly used expression that suggests that someone should accept a generalized remark or criticism by applying it to themselves, particularly when it describes them. Simply stated: Is what is being said characterize you? Yes or no. Admittance is relatively easy when the comments are kind and flattering. What if the words reflect a truth that leaves much to be desired? Shhh, hush up!
Should you be offended by words that accurately describe or "fit" you or should you deny their existence? Well let’s see. Oh my, the truth can smack you in the face and be so “hard on the ears!“ Ouch! Who wants to hear the negative stuff?
Admittance goes hand in hand with acceptance. Acceptance puts us on the front line to confront our shortcomings and do something about them. We know what they are better than most - even if we don't admit it! Thus, do we wear the too tight “fitted” shoes or take them off? Tights shoes hurt your feet and are uncomfortable. As your feet ache, so does your life! Stop the madness! There is always a solution. We can definitely do something about this! Let’s step out in style and make the needed changes that will make us better! Shall we? Our walk in comfortable shoes … and in our life will then be smooth sailing.
