Like A Lotus

I refuse to dumb myself down. My self worth won’t plummet in your presence. I’ll resist shrinking for you; feeling less beautiful, talented, or intelligent than I know myself to be. I can’t hide my truth to cover for your lies. I will not become a lesser version of myself for your benefit. You have no say in how much joy fills my heart. My kindness won’t disappear in the face of your bitterness. I am not affected by your disposition. You hold no power here, in my world, my dear. However, I will wish you peace, love, success, comfort, and joy in everything that you do.

  1. I heard from my sister that someone can’t trigger you for existing. That’s a choice of your own to get mad at them.

    If someone is taking you down and harming you, they need to consider why they want to.

    The power in the paragraph you wrote is poignant and potent. You are great at making content that causes people to think as well as feel.

    I always look forward to your content.💕

    This is what I found out in your post
    I love how you refuse to dumb yourself down. You’re strong and beautiful, and I respect that. I love that you don’t let yourself be pulled down by your feelings. I’m glad you’re able to let yourself feel happy and content.
