Over dinner tonight I was telling my husband how I use to dumb down my creativeness, my personality, and my special unique talents/gifts if friends or people in general seemed to look at my funny. I wanted relationships to work so bad that I was willing to put aside all who and what I was so that I didn’t make anyone feel uncomfortable. See, you know there were many times when people were “offended”. If I knew too many answers in class I was disliked and looked at like a teachers pet. If I shined too much when all the girls were hanging out with guys, I was doing too much and trying too hard. If I walked into a room and I was dressed as best as I could and made people laugh with my wit, I was looked at like “Who the heck does she thing she is?” There are so many cases where people would dislike the real me and so the real me could not come out at all times because the real me “NEEDED” people to love and accept me. Wow…even as I type this I cry inside for the old me. The thought of sadness is the very reason I’m writing this right now. If you have ever thought or felt the need to do this or be this way PLEASE STOP/Don’t! You are who you are. You are supposed to be unique and you are supposed to shine. If your luminous rays are too bright for those around you, well… THEY CAN LEAVE THE ROOM!
Be YOURSELF, because no one else can. Be you, because that’s all you know how to do, and don’t you ever forget to fly!
