I truly believe being yourself is directly correlated to your happiness. You know how you feel when you’re around a friend who truly accepts you for you and you’re not watching every word you say, worried they will think you’re nuts? That’s how you should feel around everyone in your life.
Never give the power to someone to make u feel like crap. People often belittle others to make themselves feel grand. Um No buddy, that’s not how it goes!
Just like you can’t rely on people to make u feel happy (you have to do that yourself), you can’t let anyone make you feel inferior. Usually when someone says something mean they’re projecting their own stuff. You don’t have time for that. You are busy creating the life that makes YOU happy, whatever that may be.
Any who, I go off tangent sometimes but I’ve been thinking about ways we could celebrate our Fierce selves. Accepting and celebrating all aspects of who you are is one authentic way. All of our experiences, positive and negative, have shaped who we are so we should embrace them and move on to create the future selves we want to be.
