Never tone yourself down for anyone. You are incredible and beautiful and strong. The people who would reject you on this basis (because you’re too much / intense / real) are the people not yet secure enough to see their own incredibleness reflected through your being.
Know and discern what is your powerful truth, and what is ego masquerading as vulnerability. Love does not need a reason to be or act, and it is without intention or expectation.
Be all of who you are, with everyone, and without exception.
Be all of who you are when all of who you are needs no explanation and has no intention or expectation of being received in any particular way.
This is how we show up. This is how we give others the opportunity to show up with us, and show us their incredibleness
