Spots, stripes, and other camouflage - how far will you go to blend in?
We all want to be accepted, loved, known, seen. But do we change ourselves for that to happen? Do we put on masks or camouflage ourselves to fit in? Do we deny parts of ourselves or play them down so that others will accept us?
Thankfully, I have found that as I have aged, I have become more comfortable with myself; learned who I am and to celebrate it. Now in my 40s, I feel good in my own skin (most of time!) and am happy to say no to things that I need to say no to, to embrace who I am, and not to feel that I have to be a certain way to fit in.
I am loved, and I find peace and security in that love.
