So much power in such a small phrase.
"I cannot continue to live as half of myself simply because it's hard for others to handle all of me." ▪▪▪▪
My whole life, I've felt like I don't quite belong. So I thought maybe if I just dial it down, try to be like other people, then maybe, just maybe, I would feel at home for once. Maybe if I was more like her, or I could get a job like that? We go through life, living to please or be accepted. ▪▪▪▪
To be honest, I used to hate telling people my GPA, or that I love to write (hopefully a book someday!), because I felt like my big ol brain was what was making me feel like such an outsider. So many things that I seem to enjoy, other people around me do not. It sometimes makes me feel like I should just stop. Like cut it out Kaitlyn, you're spooking everyone! ▪▪▪▪▪
Please. Go back to the phrase. Say it out loud. I did; multiple times. YOU BE YOU. Do not hide who you are! If people can't handle you, all of you, the real you, then you just keep on moving friend. Those people are not your tribe. Your dreams are not too big! And you are certainly not too small. You do what you love; believe anything is possible ❤
