Everyone has a place. If you spend your time imitating and comparing there will be no one to hold your place. When you are not your true self, it leaves a void no one else can fill. Even if you try, you will never be like anyone else, so you may as well be you. The world needs you to fill the you-shaped space.
Today's words are by Brené Brown from Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.
Healing Words of the Day is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
Please feel free to share words that have helped you heal or your thoughts on these healing words.
