Monday Mirror Pep Talk
Don't apologize. Stop making moves or lack there of because of others around you. Lay down the burden of other people's happiness. It's not your responsibility to dumb yourself down, hold yourself back, or emotionally abuse your own soul to satisfy and heal other peoples' junk. They've got baggage, you've got baggage, let God unpack the suitcase.
Anyone who requires you to earn their love is a person worth writing off. Boundaries don't make you the bad guy. Sure it may make others upset if they are used to you spoon feeding them or being the "yeah, of course!" girl. But let them put on their big kid panties and handle a little disappointment like the rest of us.
