    Don´t try to be everything to everyone, just be all you need to be

    For years I equated being kind with respecting everyone else´s feelings and not making them feel uncomfortable. I got trapped in a mental loop, where I sorted through my thoughts, words and actions in order not to hurt anyone, but on the other side, I was blind to the fact that sometimes it meant holding back my whole truth, not expressing myself in a way I wanted to or dumbing myself down, so others won´t feel uncomfortable in my presence.

    Recently, I was thinking about the notion of so called “toxic relationships” and whether using this term is helpful or not. Honestly, I think that every relationship is what we created it to be and the only toxic thing about our interactions with other human beings are the fearful thought patterns that we are stuck with until we become aware of them.
