You don't owe anyone an explanation

It is really hard to put yourself out there, with all of your ideas, thoughts and beliefs.

What will people think if you are truly 100% yourself? Will you lose friends, will people comment behind your back, will you be rejected, will people try to argue your beliefs with you?

It’s scary.

The reality is, people probably don’t care as much as you think they do.

And if you do get comments back or people laughing at you, you do not have to give them the energy to explain yourself. You don’t owe anyone anything.

I may have some strange beliefs that others may not understand.. But when I do talk about them to some of my inner circle, I get weird looks, or people laugh at me and roll their eyes.

And that’s okay.

Because those are MY beliefs, ideas and thoughts. Not theirs.

I don’t have to convince anyone of anything. Once you truly accept that, it makes it a little bit easier to put your ideas out into the world.

When I talk about homesteading, some people get really excited for me. While others roll their eyes and cannot imagine me doing farm work. They have these ideas of who they think I am based on our history together and they use that as their basis to judge me for the path that I am choosing to go on.

When I talk about my spiritual beliefs, most people think I am ‘crazy’ for believing in Magick and energy work. They accept that I am empathic, but it’s a stretch for them to accept that I am a witch. My choice of spiritual path is different now than it was 5 years ago, and some people in my life don’t understand it. But that is okay, it is not my job to explain it to them.

As long as the way I choose to live my life does not harm others, I am free to do and believe in what I please. No explanations required.

People may reject me for this, or they may embrace me. Yes, it can be scary to be open about who I am, but it’s so much worse hiding it.
