I once had friends that made me feel like I was too much. Too focused or too talented and that made me feel like I had to tone it down. I felt like I had to not take interest in some of the things that I liked because of them so I would not look “too serious. “
That got me really unhappy and I ended up having a slight hatred towards them but after some thinking, I realized that I had to learn to be on my own. I didn’t need friends that were going to make me feel wrong for being myself. If no one else was going to appreciate me, I was going to learn to be comfortable on my own.
And even though some days it gets really lonely, I learnt not to make myself smaller for other people. That is something no one can take away from me.
So today, our goal is to learn to make friends that celebrate us just as we celebrate them. We learn to make friends that will accept us for who we are. Never ever minimize yourself just to fit in. You’re worth it.
To your health ❤
