don’t water yourself down for those who are intimidated by your potential. more often than not, those who disapprove of your dauntless aura are envious of it, and would wear the same brand of confidence could they afford to do so.
humility is key, yeah. and so is confidence.
pursue mutuality; surround yourself with people who appreciate you as much as you appreciate them. people who value you, truly. you shouldn’t feel like your presense is a burden, an annoyance, or an ‘inconvenience’ when you’re surrounded by those that are dear to you. the people that are meant for you will love you, unconditionally, for exactly who you are. you accept anything less than that, and you’ll be selling yourself short.
‘yin & yang’ represent the absolute balance of the universe. inevitably, there is always good within the bad, and bad within the good. this symbol also represents the two main types of energy; yin represents ‘feminine’ or ‘spiritual’ energy, and yang represents ‘masculine’ or ‘earth’ energy. the dots within the circle represent the reality that one energy can’t exist without the other; a concept that also applies to what i mentioned earlier (good in the bad, bad in the good). a timeless symbol, it is

i’ve never been the materialistic type. even as a kid, i look around and i just, don’t see much. what is there to be so intrigued by?

try to refrain from placing your personal, ‘closed-minded’ expectations upon people. take in and accept who someone actually is; don’t shame them because they aren’t who you want them to be, or who you think they should be. that’s an insecure, selfish approach to life. your life is unique to you and in return it has given you your own personal perspective; a concept that applies to each individual person. expecting people to cater to your own personal biases and beliefs, and to march to the beat of ‘your’ drum as opposed to the beat of their own drum, is foolish.
let people live their lives, in peace.
