I'm starting this thread in the NF Idyllic, but other types are welcome to participate as well.
When I hear somebody talking about how this and this person has a lot of potential, it almost feels like an accusation that they're not good enough as they are right now. That they can be better if they only wanted to.
But what if potential is the only thing that person has, and there are other things, unaware to the people around them, that nullify the potential?
Do you find that other people knowing about your potential is helping or hindering you?
