Proving yourself sounds so dramatic. It’s as if someone expects us to throw ourselves on cue in the path of peril to salvage the honour, pride and wellbeing of a cause larger than ourselves. It’s mostly squaring up to adversity, stepping up to a challenge and making the best out of a given situation based on our resources. I’ve come to the stage whereby there are some things that do not require any more proving to justify my existence or abilities. It’s either I can perform or not at the given time by executing some action or judgement that balances the known and unknown for an outcome that we hope will eventually turn out in favour of our invested efforts.
