Not the actual insect, but of the proverbial sound of nothing but their chirping when we’ve offered the best we have and that’s the response we get.
It’s not a fear without some justification since, if you put yourself out there and let your light shine, you will inevitably do so to people who have no intention on being part of your audience.
The thing is, someone out there needs to hear what you have to say, or see what you have to show.
I get that you can probably name a person this very instant whose light shines brighter and further than yours. You might even think they have the market cornered.
Understand that there are those out there who are a lot more like you than the person you’re thinking of with all that reach, and they need you.
You’ll never see them though, if you don’t turn your light on.
And wouldn’t that be a shame.
