Rule #210 05/13/16
You Are Not For Everyone.
You are not for everyone, you are a rare combination of a frequency many cannot hear. Do not waste your energy trying to explain the lyrics in your song when those who are not for you cannot even hear the music. You are kind and patient and all sorts of unconditional outbursts, you change and flow so effortlessly so many cannot even keep up with you. You create safe spaces and share stories that are so real, your not afraid to touch those places that hurt and your not afraid to lean into embarrassment, some may call you foolish but your sensitivity is not your weakness rather it's the epitome of true strength. The honesty and emotions you share are your truth and you my beautiful soul have never been ashamed to rip yourself open and let the world see you - to see YOU. So many will not share so deeply and love so fiercely, to speak even when your voice shakes, so yes in a sense you are very alone, I know how much this pains you. Still, you are not for everyone, so do not force yourself to dim your light and fit in places that restrict and bind, the kind of places that force you to shape and shift into something you are not. You've worked too hard to love and accept yourself, as is with no changes to ever go back to being afraid of who your are - you follow that North Star of your truth and you don't ever look back. You are not for everyone. ~Will "Story" Rivera
