Week 3 of 52 Weeks of Chic – We Stop Shrinking to Make Others Comfortable
Do you work hard towards a goal yet avoid telling others when you succeed?
Ever remain silent when you want to speak up because you don’t want to upset anyone?
Do you adjust your personality or downplay your achievements around around certain people?
This week we finally stop shrinking to make others feel better about themselves.
Today let’s embrace and express ourselves exactly as we are vowing to never again water down our personality, skills, accomplishments, strengths, gifts, talents or desires for others.
To be anyone other than who God created us to be leaves us feeling frustrated, confused and even fake as we lose our identity in the needs of others.
An insecure woman’s confidence can and should never come at the expense of yours.
The wise woman always allows the achievements and confidence of other women to inspire her, not spark envy and jealousy within her.
A woman’s self-worth is an inside job and it is no one’s (friend, husband, boyfriend etc) responsibility to make her feel valued, beautiful and worthy. Neediness has killed relationships that otherwise could have thrived.
So this week we stop shrinking who we are to make others feel better about themselves!
It’s a fact that we will always be too much for some people and not enough for others.
The wise woman understands this and focuses on simply being herself and refuses to water herself down so others feel better about themselves.
Just Be You!
