I spent many years covering up my authentic self. Trying to be someone I thought I should present to others. Someone that fit into a cookie cutter image that I thought I wanted to be. It’s freeing and liberating to no longer care what people think. I have no desire to minimize myself to make others feel comfortable. I use my voice, I speak up, I embrace my sensuality, I dress the way I want, I follow my own rules, I embrace my flaws, I fuck up, I learn, I own who I am, I live my truth.
Sometimes we must strip away everything we once held to be absolute to expose our authentic self. Stop dimming who you are…you get this one life to allow your true essence to shine. Shine bright.
