Brave girl, promise me you will not shrink yourself in order to make others feel more comfortable.
You are not better as a lesser version of yourself. When who you are and who you’re trying to be don’t align, you’ll only end up unhappy and disappointed.
The light that shines from the true you is who you are meant to be. You are not required to hide that or make yourself smaller in order to cater to other peoples’ comfort levels. Hiding your true self will only make you unhappy and miserable.
You have a duty to shine like the gem you are because you are unique and you are needed. There is no-one else like you and the world will be less for you compromising yourself.
