I think we have all been in a situation similar to this one I am about to depict. You are finally talking to that one guy or girl that you have been eyeing up for a while and feel like you have to act a certain way in order to keep their interest.

You are sitting and staring at your phone with so much anxiety because you are worried that if you say the wrong thing that they won't like you or want to talk to you anymore. And that is where the problem lies, literally in your hands. But it's okay because we have all been there and have done that little dance with our fingers while trying to come up with some witty thing to say to that guy or girl, and then we end up deleting it 4 or 5 times until we think it is just right. In reality, it shouldn't matter. You should be able to say and act any way you want and that person should enjoy who you are regardless. This doesn't even have to just be restricted to romantic relationships, it can apply to friendships as well.

I think it is safe to say that we all fear rejection because that is just human nature. We want to be liked by everyone, but the fact of the matter is that we are simply just too much for some people, AND THAT'S OKAY. Not everyone is going to appreciate you the way they are supposed to because they are just not your people. That is not to say that you won't find your people because you will, and it will come naturally just by you being yourself.

Never belittle yourself just because you come across a person who can’t handle all that you have to offer the world. You are perfect the way you are and NEVER let anyone else make you feel otherwise. You may be too smart, too wise, too loud, or even too kind for some people, but you can’t waste your life worrying about those people because you will never get anything accomplished. Those people are not meant to be a part of your life, and who cares? You only need people in your life that encourage you to be yourself and to never change.

As one of my favorite bloggers wrote in a recent post of hers, “you aren’t too heavy, they are just too weak to carry you” and I couldn’t agree more. The next time someone makes you doubt yourself or makes you feel like you are too much, just know that they are the weak ones and you are perfect just the way you are, girlfriend.
