Every journey starts with one step.

I’ll take my first step on arguing over internet (with real identity) and say that yes it is important to take the first step but I think its not how one should be encouraged to take the first step. After taking care of a 4 year old (for last 4 years :) one thing I’ve learnt is that it is human nature to take first steps all the time, but its social structure that forces everyone to not take the first step. “Oh be careful when you try to climb that” to an infant is similar to telling a grown person “Please don’t ask dumb questions else you’ll be humiliated by your peers”. So I wish that if we work together to change our social interactions to not punish anyone to make mistakes then our world will be different.
