I am sensitive when I don't want to admit it.
Us humans are so resilient it's mind blowing.
While ignorance is bliss...as you grow older and see those younger than you making such ignorant mistakes, I wouldn't trade what I know now for the world. I have a new understanding of the outcome of both hurting and respecting others.
Believe in yourself when nobody else does.
You really can't depend on anyone but yourself (and hopefully your family).
A quote I recently came across that I'm currently in love with...
"At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want." -Lao Tzu
And a reminder for us all:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
