I hope your week is off to an awesome start. Over the weekend I went to a friend’s Engamenet Party. I rarely wear black. When I was younger, I thought I had to overcompensate with my personality and what I wore just to stand out. I’ll be honest, I thought there was nothing special about my personality. So I was loud when I should’ve been quiet. I showed aggressiveness when I should’ve shown self-control. I tried to dress a certain way to signify that I was special. Rather than just letting my personality do the work for me. As I’ve gotten older I know without a shadow of a doubt that there’s tons of special things about me. Yes, I’m an introvert by nature but I’m not weak, timid or quiet. Now I know that there’s great strength in having self-control. I know when I need to speak up and when I need to let God vindicate me.
I don’t feel the need to overcompensate with my personality anymore. I know that wearing black doesn’t make me blend in at all. I don’t need to dress a certain way just to show people I’m special. So when I was drawn to this LBD, I realized how much I have changed. So whoever you are, know that you don’t have to act a certain way. You don’t have to dress or look a certain way; just be yourself.
