When I was about 8 years old I wore something similar to this to a school social. I had Mum make it for me out of my imagination and I was so excited.
From the moment I walked into the room that night, I was ridiculed. It was the first time in my life I experienced being called a slut and it wouldn’t be the last time for simply wearing something different (I didn’t even understand then what it meant and I don’t think the other kids did either)
That was one of the moments that would dull my sparkle for many many years to come.
For @bluesfestbyronbay a couple of years ago, I decided to create the same outfit and ALLOW myself to shine twenty years worth of shine that I had been suppressing. It was such an magical day!
How about we teach each other and our kids a little more about respect, support, acceptance and encouragement? That words of negativity can impact someone else’s life forever - in the same way words of encouragement can.
Never let anyone dare dull the light that shines through this form .... RISK BEING SEEN ... IN ALL OF YOR GLORY ✌🏻
