Don’t go changing, to try and please me…
“When you change yourself so that others will not be upset by you, some will still judge and you will expend a lot of effort. When you be who you are, then at least one of you is happy.”
~ Jennifer Hough (Tweetable)
I just had a beautiful conversation with one of our team members about something I can relate to: being told that I am “too much,” with the implicit message being that I should dull myself down.
Has anyone ever told you that?
Say maybe you spend your life thinking that nobody sees you, or that you know you think differently than many people in your life. There are two main, standard human responses: try really hard to get people to like you… or become incredibly independent so that you are an island. Offense or Defense.
Sometimes your light won’t ignite the flames you wish, but you will ignite the flames of those who are ready. So much more efficient!
You radiator, you….
P.S. I’m basking in your glow… bring it!
If this resonates for you, maybe it will for your friends, too…
