I refuse to water myself down in order to make others comfortable

“Do you ever feel like you’ll never be enough?”
My friend looked at me with puffy eyes, a red nose, and messy hair. She’d just been cheated on and had stayed with me a couple nights.

Her question stuck with me because I know its one most people grapple with when it comes to dating. Truth is I usually worry I’m too much.
Too emotional, too outspoken, too ambitious, too sensitive, too critical in my thinking, too feminist, too complicated, too quiet,  too honest, too vain, too loyal, too reactive, too this too that.
The thing is I refuse to water myself down in order to make others comfortable.

In some ways I know am too much. Some days I’m even too much for myself. I’m too much from experience and with that experience comes wisdom and love that not many people can hold especially not in someone as young as me.
What one person finds overwhelming and terrifying the next may find illuminating and comforting.

Whether you worry you’re too much or not enough…just know its never about you if anyone makes you feel that way its about them and they’re simply not a right match for your energy. Harness your gifts and find those who make them stronger don’t let people dim your light simply because they don’t understand it.
