Find Your People

Showing the world who we really are can render us painfully vulnerable, leaving us open to those that may reject or harm us. However, the more we show our true selves the greater the chance we’ll find the ones that will love and accept us, despite our weaknesses, oddities and flaws. So go out there and find your people. Live the life that inspires you. Those that fall away cannot embrace you the way you yearn to be embraced. Life is too short to surround yourself with superficial confidants. Some people will break your heart and throw you out of their lives like yesterday’s garbage. But by being honest and open about yourself as you move through this world, you will find the ones that will light up your life like you never thought could.

“She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.”

– Shel Silverstein
