You will be too raw for some. You will be too loud, too big, too fierce, too quiet, too deep. These are not your people.

Some people are going to reject you simply because you shine too bright for them. That’s okay. Keep shining.

You deserve to be loved without having to hide the parts of yourself you think are unlovable.

I think something people need to understand is that others disliking you is not a bad thing. When you are embodying your true authentic self, it creates fear in people who still operate from the ego. If you want to grow, heal, and evolve you have to let go of wanting to be liked.

Choose people who choose you.

It’s not that people can’t love you if you don’t love yourself. It’s that you won’t feel it because it will always seem like you don’t deserve it.

There are two things you should never waste your time on: things that don’t matter and people who think that you don’t matter.

You can’t force anyone to value, respect, understand, or support you, but you can choose to spend your time around people who do.

Be yourself. Weird, wonderful, sensitive, impulsive, crazy, mystical, vulnerable, lovable, magical and beautiful. The right people will adore you.

Some people are empowered by travel and some are inspired by the warmth of home. Some thrive in the spotlight and some feel called to support those who are on stage. Some people are comfortable half-dressed and cussing like sailors and others prefer modesty and gentleness. The thing is: we are all empowered and inspired in different ways, and it’s not our job to decide what that looks like for anyone else.

Walk away from people who put you down. Walk away from fights that will never be resolved. Walk away from trying to please people who will never see your worth. The more you walk away from things that poison your soul, the healthier you will be.

Go where your energy is reciprocated, celebrated, and appreciated.

I have a limited amount of time left on this planet, and I’m not gonna spend it being a watered down version of myself just so people can like me.

You’re right, I’m more than a little weird and a bit awkward. No, I don’t fit in and most people don’t understand me. But at least I’m being real and I think the world needs more people who are brave enough to be real.

7.5 billion people in this world and you let the opinion of one stop your good energy? You’re better than that.

Look at you! Healing those traumas, addressing those bad habits, holding yourself accountable, no longer seeking validation from others, and finally speaking your personal truth. Seriously, I applaud you! Growth gets messy, ugly, and painful, yet here you are growing. We see you!

You either like me or you don’t. It took me twenty-something years to learn how to love myself. I don’t have that kinda time to convince somebody else.

At the end of the day, I’d rather be excluded for who I include than included for who I exclude.

You ARE good enough. (Actually, you’re probably overqualified. But let’s start the week off humble.)

Your mental health is more important than your career, money, other people’s opinions, that event you said you would attend, your partner’s mood and your family’s wishes, combined. If taking care of yourself means letting someone down, then let someone down.
