This is how you stop feeling overwhelmed by people and by society. This is how you can be you. This is how you can shine your light and how you will be happy.
Quit playing along with the facade.
I want you and the people around you to be real, honest. I want you to have connections with people that come from love. I want you to quit playing along with the facade. Of wearing masks, of being polite when it doesn’t feel right, of holding back because it could hurt someone’s feelings, of holding back because your inner critic says you’ll look weird.
You are your own universe
Start living in your own space instead of other people’s space. And that’s where you’ll have the most fun. You don’t need the apparent safety from getting accepted by the group. You don’t need it. You don’t have to ‘survive in this society’. It’s the other way around. You are your own universe and the rest of the world exists in that space.
Dealing with difficult situations
And yes, you might have to do go to a job you don’t really like. Yes, you have to deal with people who are fake or negative, or very awful. People who tell you that you aren’t enough this or that. When you stay in your own space, when you keep holding space for yourself, you will be okay anywhere. You are born to live this way.
