I Refuse to Shrink

My thoughts matter. My feelings matter. My voice matters.
And with or without anyone’s permission or approval,
I will continue to be who I am and speak my truth.
Even if it makes people angry.
Even if it makes them uncomfortable.
Even if they choose to leave.
I refuse to shrink. I choose to take up space.
I choose to honour my feelings.
I choose to give myself permission to get my needs met.
I choose to make self-care a priority. I choose me.”
