Do you really think that those who love you would not applaud you for doing what feels right.
I have been there myself… being oversensitive and taking things too personally. I used to get offended and found it hard to take constructive criticism. As you can guess, I did not learn much that way.
Sometimes the greatest opportunities of growth are the ones that you may find most difficult to take favorably. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. When is the last time that you felt like you expressed your authentic self? You are no longer burdened by excessive thought, worried about what others will think, feeling bad, and fearful to take action. You are ready to fly and as Rumi instructs, you should choose to fly. You can do this by expressing your true potential and not by crawling or living and acting in fear and hesitation.
This is a battle I fight almost every day. The choice to fly into my fullest potential even though it is scary but exciting. The choice to cast aside fear, excuses and living in doubt and choosing faith, belief and courage. Is there something that you are just unable to shake off? You have cast it aside numerous times, but it always shows up in the form of synchronicities and obvious messages on the wall?

Somewhere along the journey, I realized that instead of resisting, I should go towards my own strange calling.
Are you answering the strange calls of what you love? My beliefs, my conditioning, and my doubts got the better of me and I stopped short.

Are you ready to take the first step and move on the way? It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. Whenever, I lost track of the power of words and carelessly raised my voice, I ended up regretting it.
Rumi reminds us to raise the consciousness, the integrity and the accountability of our words. When we say things that we will do loudly and do not follow through, it slowly erodes the confidence and our efficacy to accomplish things and be taken seriously.

Cast aside the loud rumblings of thunderous words that do not mean any action and fall short every time. We seek love and approval from others when we are the only ones that can provide self-assurance.
We seek happiness out there. We feel like if we accomplish success and make a great deal of fortune, our life will somehow magically transform. The search should be directed inwards to determine what makes you tick, what are your strengths and what makes life meaningful for you.
