How do you balance it?
How do you make sure that you’re not harming or offending people and still being true to yourself? How do you listen to good advice and well meaning mentors but not give up on things that are important to you?
How do you stay true to yourself?
It gets harder and harder as time goes by.
You alter yourself in all these little ways because you don’t want to rock the boat.
You don’t want to offend.
You don’t want to upset.
But where do you draw the line?
When do you call it quits?
When do you stop chiselling away little pieces of yourself to fit in to the space that’s been left for you?
When do you embrace the criticism and commentary and stop letting it change you?
Where’s the line?
Where’s the stopping point when you accept that pleasing people isn’t what you’re meant to do?
Where’s the final straw?
