I didn't write this. Shawna did. But I feel this every single day. You?
It's hard to grow, if you fight it. If you try to hide it. I have found it fascinating that everything else in nature seems to grow without the slightest bit of effort, but not me. It feels hard. Hard and stale. But when I stop fighting it, and stop hiding it, and let myself travel from day to day without digging my heels in as if I can do anything but drag... it makes for a crisp, fresh day, unfrowned upon.
Stay true to yourself, and accept the cost.
