One of the things I love about reading my favorite books or watching my favorite movies for the umpteenth time is that, even after all this time, I hear things that I've missed all the other times because my focus was elsewhere.
Tonight ,I was watching Garden State and this line that had never affected me before, brought me to tears. It's only been in the last couple years that I finally stopped trying to fit the square peg that is me into the round hole that is what has been expected of me. My whole life, in one area or another,I've been trying to round out my beautiful edges to fit in to something of which I don't even want to take part! It made me feel dull and unimpressive.
It's so freeing to simply be what you are and be release from trying to alter yourself to please others. Grow? By all means! Conform? Never. We have this one life and it goes by SO fast! Don't waste it by trying to be what you are not!
I'm weird. I can be intense. I love deep conversations. I ask too many questions. I prefer the cold hard truth and I search for it in unlikely places. I get anxious before any large social event. I hate sports. I love books and tea and thunderstorms and cats. I don't do superficial well...at all!
Not everyone likes me. Not everyone approves of me or how I live my life but I've come to terms with that. Bless and release. When you are fully you, you watch the wrong people filter out but the right people can find you because you are willing to be seen.
I used to think it was scary to be seen but I've realized that it's scarier to go through your whole life and never find your tribe. I'm not the only weirdo in the bunch and neither are you! So, let's allow ourselves to be whatever it is that we are and release others to do the same! ❤️
