Do Not Dim Your Light For Anyone
I remember being in a relationship years ago and I was telling a fantastical story, probably using my hands and making giant gestures, and my boyfriend at the time looked at me and said, "you are just SO loud." Uh yeah. Have you met me? He also didn't like that I was fat. But, again, have you met me? Every time he would comment on the personality traits that I definitely had when we met, I felt the sparkle leave me a little. When I got out of that relationship, I decided I would never dim my light for anyone again. This isn't just about love relationships. It is about family and friendships. The people you attract into your life should love and appreciate you for who you are.
So I am reminding myself, and you, that you should never dim your light for anyone else. Sure, sometimes we have to consider our audience and censor ourselves a bit. But, for the most part, be you.
