some motivation

I say this with love, because I have realized some truths
I am not intimidating, you are intimidated.
There’s a difference.

I don’t take up too much space,
you’re just used to people playing small.

My inner light is not too bright.
You’re just used to dimming your own.

I am not mean, nor aggressive.
I am honest and assertive,
and that makes you uncomfortable.

I do not make you uncomfortable.
My presence challenges your comfort.

All of that is yours.

I will not be less for you to feel better about yourself.
