I realize that I don't need to please everybody to be liked.
I don't need to be entertaining to be loved.
I need not cage myself in because of what others might think. My possibilities are endless!
I can be myself. Those who like me may stay, those who don't- it's ok. It's just life.
I've become tired of sugar-coating my words
I've grown weary in worrying of stepping on someone else's toes.
I don't really want to be a big deal. I want to be treasured for who I truly am, not for who I've tried to win you over to like.
Now, I'm not gonna go bustin' out saying negative things whenever they cross my mind-
and I'm not going to forget societal norms and rules-
but I want to think past what I've always thought was expected of me. I just want to..be. And thrive, obviously ; )
To clarify: I have not put on a face, an act, or a show up until this point. God's timing is perfect. I simply hadn't found it within myself to realize that I don't have to try so hard all the time. I am me. And I just want to be.
