be who you are

4 May

This sums it up today. Sometimes I leave conversations thinking and feeling insecure about any and everything that I said. Did they like me because of the things I said? Do they not like me because of the things I said? Are they going to talk bad about me behind my back because of the things I said?

You know you think it too.

I hate insecurity. So much. But this rang true to me today. And reminded me that I am the one who chooses to surround myself with people who either like me FOR ME or don’t. Those that stick around regardless of what comes out of my mouth are the keepers anyways.

Not that bad things are coming out of my mouth. I just like to speak my mind and I’m not afraid to say what I think. I don’t mean to be intense, it’s just who I am.

It’s a work in progress. Aren’t we all?

    I want to believe this saying is true but everything that comes out of my mouth seems to make somebody mad. It’s a lose lose situation for me. I hope you have better luck. Maybe I just like tact or somewhere I turned into a drunken sailor or something. Well I don’t swear so maybe no druken sailor, just a sober one :-/

      bahaha!! Julie! Sooo funny!! Sometimes I lack tact too. Stuff just comes out and I realize later that I might be offending people. haha. Or just a little intense on the way I do things/feel etc. Still, be who you are! xo
