The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Don’t Fit the Mold – Break It!
Quote of the Day:
“Be yourself. If you water yourself down to please people or to fit in or to not offend anyone, you lose the power, the passion, the freedom and the joy of being uniquely you. It’s much easier to love yourself when you are being yourself.” ~Dan Coppersmith
The Single Woman Says:
Here’s a little secret that’s going to save you a LOT of unnecessary grief in life. Are you ready?
Your worth is not tied to any person.
You are NOT a flag, and the people in your life are NOT the flagpole. When you treat them as such, you are left flapping in the breeze of uncertainty every time someone dismisses you, hurts you, misunderstands you, betrays you, or leaves you.
Life will be a miserable experience if you spend it putting out fires of disapproval rather than letting your light shine without fear. I’m learning on this journey that not everyone is meant to travel beside us. Some would slow us. Others would deter us. And some are GIANT roadblocks that would block us from the destiny that God has for us. So TRUST that if they strayed from your path – they DO NOT belong there. Not just everybody can go where you’re going.
Bottom line: The ones who are meant to get you, will GET you. The ones who aren’t will be mystified by you. And that’s okay. It’s not your place to try and please anyone or win anyone’s approval. Because after all: You’re not here to fit nicely inside their mold. You’re here to break it.
