There was a time (not long ago) where I played small and passed up many great opportunities to keep people in my life. At the time it was easier. I didn’t want to “Rock the Boat” and it helped these “friends” feel stronger and in control. I convinced myself that sacrificing myself would prove to them that I was loyal. Once I proved my loyalty this would end.
*BUT IT WOULD NEVER END*
I realized that I was doing NO ONE any favors hiding. These people were not really friends.
FRIENDS CELEBRATE YOUR VICTORIES.
They are your cheerleaders! Friends never trip you to keep you behind them. Friends lift each other so they can each shine bright.
Grateful for my tribe that lifts me when I fall and cheers for me every step of the way.
