It’s okay to say “I don’t know”….

Have you ever experienced the feeling of getting stuck ? And then trying to worm your way out of the situation. When I am in such a situation, it ends up in me telling, one ‘white’ lie after another, and then I eventually contradict myself !!! Aw, what a royal mess!!!!

So today I took it upon to tell myself, that it is completely alright to say, ” I DON’T KNOW…..”
The best thing is that, when I admit to others that I really don’t know something, there are no pressures involved, no false expectations, no reaching up to the mark and definitely, no implication of any false knowledge or making up new stuff !!!
It gives me an opportunity to learn something new, eases the pressure on me and allows me to explore at my own pace. As once said by Confucious, ” If you know, to rcognize that you know. If you don’t know, to realize that you don’t know; that is knowledge.”
So if I am asked something that I am totally clueless about, ‘m gonna say “I don’t know “; how else will I ever learn ?!!
