"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
I saw this on a sign online. We care so much what others think about us that often we will bury the key parts of our being. Afraid to share in case we are rejected, so instead we try desperately to blend in to the world. There is a sadness when we are not showing our true self, the self that God created us to be.
Do not fear to be you. Those around you whether they are family or friends may put you down or just don't understand the things that you do, say or think. You were designed by a Master to be unique, beautiful and one of a kind.
Have you ever thought that those around you may be the ones who are hiding their true self and as a result are unable to comprehend a fearless child of God?
