Do you shrink yourself? Try to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less you. Because you didn’t want to be a burden, didn’t want to be too much or push people away. You wanted people to like you, to be cared for and valued, and wanted to be wanted. So for years, you sacrificed yourself for the sake of making other people happy. And for years, you suffered. But you’re tired of suffering, and you’re done shrinking. It’s not your job to change who you are in order to become someone else’s idea of a worthwhile human being.

You are worthwhile. Not because other people think you are, but because you exist, and therefore you matter. Your thoughts matter, feelings matter, and voice matters. And with or without anyone’s permission or approval, you will continue to be who you are and speak your truth. Even if it makes people angry. Even if it makes them uncomfortable. Even if they choose to leave. Refuse to shrink. Choose to take up space. Choose to honor your feelings. Choose to give yourself permission to get your needs met. Choose to make your self-care a priority. Choose you.

Action:  When will you choose to live authentically?
