People Will Judge You Regardless
Go where you’re celebrated, not tolerated. And for those who throw their judgmental crap at you—just remember it has nothing to do with you. Who you’re being can be a threat to some people’s identities, and almost unconsciously and automatically, they’ll take sides, get positional, go to I agree/disagree conversations, and look for some way to kill off anything you’re committing to contributing or creating.
Focus On Your Internal Compass
Shine your greatness in the world and always focus on giving your gifts as deeply and at the highest level possible. Essentially, sharing and contributing from a space of your authentic Self-expression and what makes you feel alive and purposeful as opposed to doing something because you think you should, or, because it validates some aspect of your identity is crucial. Never diminish yourself by trying to fix yourself and going into the “there’s something wrong” mode.
People will judge you regardless.
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.
