Don’t dim your light or play on a level that’s less than you’re capable of or desire. Don’t tame your wildness or start bending and folding for the sake of someone else’s comfort.
People will rise to meet you… or they won’t.
If they fall away it creates space for the ones who are meant to walk beside you. The ones who fan your flames and love to witness you for the person you are, not who they want you to be.
Today I’m grateful for an amazing community that’s held me through so much over the last few years. People who see me, love me, get me, and show up for me in ways I didn’t know was possible.
The only way to create this kind of community is a willingness to let go of the hands you were never meant to hold for as long as you did. A willingness to walk through periods of loss and loneliness. And the biggest piece… a willingness to be vulnerable and open, wearing your heart right out on your sleeve. The courage to be who you are. 💕
