11: This Means War

***

Even though I admire the following sayings and anyone who lives up to them…

  1. “Always be yourself”
  2. “Speak your mind”
  3. “Don’t make yourself small to make someone else feel safe”

… I think we should stay small sometimes.

There are exceptions, but try it first in the following circumstances:

  1. When being big would take the opportunity from someone who doesn’t get to be big very often.
  2. When being big feels small.

3. When there are rubies in the floorboards, coal in the cupboards.
