Something that is unfamiliar to someone else,
May feel like someone else is being a fraud.
Remember to each their own, yet
Remember also that what is unfamiliar to
Someone else, doesn’t discredit, or devalue you,
Unless you give it the power of belief,
When you believe them.
You also believe you must defend and prove
To them that you aren’t,
And then you enter into the cycle,
Of never in their eyes,
your eyes, not being good enough...
When we put our reigns,
In someone’s hands,
That aren’t us…
Just because we differ,
May we discern,
That very easily we can fall
Into this automatic people pleaser,
Once we have already made this
Habit or pattern before,
Default is much easier than
Allowing them to think whatever they want,
Without us complying, caving, or believing
Hold your power, in your space,
Don’t get wrapped up in their view,
Realize you have nothing to prove
To anyone but yourself.
Also notice they have their moments,
As we too, will have these moments,
Where something will be so unfamiliar,
Where we will have our ignorant moment,
So as we know this,
May we grow,
Grow our respect,
Grow our forgiveness,
Grow our compassion,
Not just for them,
But for ourselves.
Always feeding love,
Light even though adversity,
Still rises and falls,
All these, are creating, manifesting,
Offering us all opportunities,
To exude, to grow, to rise, to love...

I am not obligated to prove
Anything to anyone, but myself.
I thrive getting healthier and staying Healthier,
Staying heart wise, soul centered,
Knowing I don’t know everything,
And maybe, just maybe this will be enough,
For now to exude light for me, light for others,
Without all the labeling, shaming, and fighting..
I am only as I believe myself to be,
Different, and that’s definitely more than Okay!
I love myself, I love you,
and life is a learning, to experience,
to grow, to be, as each of us are always,
still learning and loving to be...
