//Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious// ~ #rumi
Fear is the reason behind every chance not taken, every truth not spoken, and every dream not followed. I made a decision last year to give zero fucks about what someone thinks when I say no to something I truly don't want to say yes to, or when they're seeking to take advantage of me. As a former chronic people pleaser that was a hard one, but I'm getting better at it. I'm being as true to myself as I can be in all my interactions and relationships, no matter how others choose to take it. None of us is responsible for how other people receive what we offer, especially when they aren't even aware of when they filter things through the lens of their past experience, unaware of their triggers and habits and patterns. All we can do is move about our days with as much love and compassion as possible and don't let the fear of other people's reactions stop you from living and speaking your truth.
TRUTH = FREEDOM
