We as individuals often wear a mask that can be so heavy, that the need and desire for our true colors to be exposed can turn into something drastic and unkind. It takes more energy to not be yourself than it does to be who you are… Don’t be disappointed when people are not accepting who you are and the unique light you have to bring to this world. We are not all at the same level, and you should never lower your light to accommodate the insecurities of others. We are all guided by that internal light to be who we really are, and it’s up to us to follow it. “To others we are not ourselves but a performer in their lives cast for a part we do not even know that we are playing.”  –Princess Elizabeth Bibesco, 1897-1945
