Are you willing to leave spaces that cannot handle the fullness of who you are?

Are you willing to leave spaces that cannot handle the fullness of who you are?

I have come to the realisation that I am not for everyone. That different people receive me differently and that impacts on how fully I can show up with those people.

There are people who can’t stand me. I’m too much for them. Everything about me is too exaggerated for them. When I am around them I feel too much, I feel like I have to shrink and censure myself to make the interaction bearable.

Then there are people who like the idea of me but can’t handle the fullness of who I am. They welcome some parts of me but cannot contain or make space for other parts of me. They may enjoy my mind but cannot handle my boundaries or my power. Their company requires me to split myself into parts so I can be palatable to them.

Then there are those who embrace the fullness of who I am . Whose presence affirms the importance of the different parts of who I am in the making of all of who I am. What I’ve observed is that those are people who are in full acceptance and in integrity with the whole of who they are. As a result, they don’t need to require others to split themselves.

My work is to learn to discern what kind of company I am in. To actively choose to spend more time with my real tribe. Those who are in integrity with all of who they are, that they are able to do the same for me.

Are you too much, or are you expecting more from those around you than they have the capacity to give you? Is it time to find your real tribe?
