There is a balance between mindful that you don’t upset anyone, yet maintaining an authenticity that is not wrapped up in the minutiae of people’s judgments of you.
~ Robert Rinder
How many of us get lost in trying to do what we think others expect us to do? For the bigger part of my life I have done just that, and many a relationship has stranded because I couldn’t maintain being who I wasn’t. It seems turning 50 really as a turning point for me. I have always said ‘I am who I am’, meaning people should just accept me like I am, but that only started happening once I accepted myself.
