Why We Feel the Need to Explain Ourselves and Justify Our Choices

We offer (or don't) an explaination of our choices for a variety of reasons.

I’ve realized that I put a lot of energy into trying to explain my decisions. Sometimes those explanations are an honest attempt to connect with another person or to step a little further out of hiding. Often, they are a result of my own self-doubt and desire for people to like me.

I’m honored to be at Tiny Buddha exploring the reasons behind the urge to explain ourselves and ways we can explain out of respect (for ourselves and others) instead of fear. Will you join me there?
