Sometimes we’re ashamed of our dreams.

Because they seem so out-of-character and silly.

 

Sometimes we’re ashamed of our strengths.

Because we believe they’re weaknesses.

 

Sometimes we’re ashamed of something we genuinely love.

Because we seem to be the only ones.

 

Sometimes we’re ashamed of not being interested in something.

Because we believe we should.

 

Sometimes we’re ashamed of who we are.

Because it’s so out of sync with who we think we’re supposed to be.

 

And so we hide our dreams from ourselves and the world.

We hide our strengths from ourselves and the world.

We hide ourselves from ourselves and the world.

 

And that’s such a shame.

For us.

And the rest of the world.
