Abandoning Rigidity

Abandoning Rigidity

This was originally published March 23rd, 2021.

My integrity no longer means keeping others out, my integrity now means finding connection with others while feeling secure enough in who I am not to be threatened by other’s difference or growth.

I no longer enact a pattern of bending to fit others better or needing the validation of others to know I am okay.

Therefore I am not afraid of being taken advantage of.

Therefore I do not need to be rigid to protect my sense of identity.
