If ur feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares u directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand
i needed this today
Again, I understand you sent this with good intentions, but I don’t find this too flattering.
Unfortunately, most people live with this egocentric idea that “people have to earn my respect”.
The world would be such a kinder place if people had respect for everyone, regardless if they just met them or not.
What you should be saying instead is “people earn my disrespect”.
