“The world is filled with people who,
no matter what you do,
will point blank not like you.
But it is also filled with those
who will love you fiercely.
They are your people.
You are not for everything and that’s OK.
Talk to the people who can hear you.
Don’t waste your precious time and gifts
trying to convince them of your value,
they won’t ever want what you’re selling.
Don’t convince them to walk alongside you.
You’ll be wasting both your time and theirs
and will likely inflict unnecessary wounds,
which will take precious time to heal.
You are not for them and they are not for you;
politely wave them on and continue along your way.
Sharing your path with someone is a sacred gift;
don’t cheapen it by rolling yours in the wrong direct.
Keep facing your true north.”
