You are too…

My thoughts last night:

You are too loud…
You are too quiet…
You are too much…
You are not enough…
You are too strict…
You are too Free spirited…
You are too mean…
You are too kind…
You are too giving…
You are too selfish…
You are too emotional…
You are too closed off…
You are too sad…
You are too excited…

Whatever you are, my hope for you is that you hear this instead of the accusations of a very complex you!

You are Enough!
You are Unique!
You matter!
You are who you are no matter what they say or even what you have told yourself.

Some days you may be loud to the person who is lonely because they are hard of hearing! Your loud style of colors and personality will be just the right thing to bring smiles and laughter a struggling world around you!

Some days you may be quiet enough to listen to a friend who is use to getting yelled!

Some days you might be filled with so much love, empathy, and compassion that overwhelms others but that kind of love has been known to save lives!

Some days your strict ways may help your children or students understand boundaries and how to set them for themselves!

Some days you may be free spirited enough to drive 4 hours to the ocean with your family just to see the sunset and feel the sand between your toes! Spontaneous is amazing sometimes!

Somedays you may seem mean to the people trying to manipulate the situations to get their own way. It’s okay to be perceived as mean!

Somedays you will be giving and kind to a fault and give the very last few dollars of your grocery money to help a family in need! It’s okay!

Somedays you will be seen as selfish for taking care of your own needs! Take care of yourself anyway.

Somedays you will need to just be okay with being too you! The older you get, the easier this is.

I too have battled being too everything and wanted to tell you that you are not alone!
