I recently heard a speaker say something not only funny but profound. She said, “Yeah, in my teenage years I knew everything, but as I got older, I realized it was too exhausting to keep up.”
What a statement. It really hits on an aspect of know-it-alls that I hadn’t considered. Said person must produce an endless supply of effort to keep up the façade of knowing everything. Ugh, I’m exhausted just thinking about it. After that day I’ve found myself much more comfortable with saying, “I don’t know,” than I ever had before. Maybe you will too if this has been one of your struggles in life.
