We don’t always get to be our best selves
Sometimes we have to settle. Sometimes we should put others first. We do not live in a perfect world and there are times when we have to make compromises. We have obligations to ourselves, to our families, and to our communities, and sometimes we have to make sacrifices for the greater good.
So, maybe we don’t necessarily get to be our best selves. Maybe we don’t get to shine, or display the entirety of what we have to offer.
But giving up a little of your glow to help others shine brighter – that’s really not so bad.
