The Courage to say “I’m Wobbly”

Imagine if there was no stigma and we were able to honestly put our hand up and say, “I’m feeling wobbly today”.

When people have the confidence and the courage to say out loud that they are struggling with these uncertain and overwhelming times, we relate to them more, we trust them more and we admire them more.

When we have the courage to say “I’m wobbly” it gives others the permission to admit it too and then to seek the necessary support.

I know this from personal experience and in this short but honest video below, I’d like to share with you my wobbly moments since the beginning of COVID and how two courageous people who I admire were brave enough to say “I’m struggling” out loud, which created a ripple effect of courage for me.

Because you see it takes courage to say, “I’m wobbly”.

It takes courage to say, “I don’t want to get stuck here in this dark place.”

It takes courage to seek help when you need it.

It doesn’t make you less of a leader, less of a colleague, less of a human.

It makes you courageous.
