So I decided I want to start a movement of #toomuch (unless someone already started it, and I’m just naive).
Nonetheless, have you ever been accused of being too much? I have over and over in a negative way. My story is too much. My trauma is too much. My personality is too much. My sharing with people is too much.
Trauma causes many of us to be “too much”. We question what we should tell people about our past and if we overshared and if our existence is just too much for the world to handle.
I know people have disappeared from my life constantly for my being “too much”, and I thought of myself as bad for it. BUT someone suggested the other day that I was just honestly and authentically me. Perhaps “too much” means you’re on a path to being “too amazing”?
I am choosing from today forward that I will never accept this as a character attack and will beautifully and authentically embrace my too much and the fact that I can definitely be over the top.
If people can’t deal with the real me, then I’m not sure I can deal with them.
Who’s with me in being #toomuch?
