just be me

"When you let others’ expectations drive you, you scatter your energy to the winds," -Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

I struggle with this.
I struggle with being me. With owning my feelings and not feeling guilty for how I feel.
I'm often overly concerned with what people think, how my actions and words will be taken.
I don't want to cause people pain. I don't want to let people down.

But I'm working on this. I need to be okay with owning my feelings. Even if others wish I felt different. Even if they feel let down.

I need to just be me.
To do what I need to do. To be where I need to be. To say no. To say yes. Because it's right for me.
To have things I don't do. 
To know what I do.

Who I am is who God made me.
Who I am is because of my life experiences.
Who I am is because of who HE is.

In this season

I will

Just be me.
