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.

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.

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.

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.

You’re too sensitive = You won’t let me disrespect you.

Standing up for yourself doesn’t make you argumentative. Sharing your feelings doesn’t make you oversensitive. And saying no doesn’t make you uncaring or selfish. If someone won’t respect your feelings, needs, and boundaries, the problem isn’t you; it’s them.

I have fought a thousand battles, but I am still standing. I have cried a thousand tears, but I am still smiling. I have been broken, betrayed, abandoned, rejected, but I am still walking proud. I smile. I laugh. I live life without fear and when I love, I love hard. I am humble. I am beautiful. I am real. I am me.

Learn to be okay with people not knowing your side of the story. You have nothing to prove to anyone.

Your circle should want to see you win. Your circle should clap the loudest when you have good news. If they don’t, get a new circle.

Do yourself a favor and take mixed signals as a no.

When other people treat you poorly, keep being you. Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person you are.

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.

Being called weird is like being called Limited Edition. Meaning you’re something people don’t see that often. Remember that.
