What you think of me is none of my business.

I’ve gotten push back lately from friends about my activism…about speaking out politically, about calling for equality for all, of recognizing my privilege. All topics many people don’t like talking about online. They claim it doesn’t make a difference, doesn’t change anyone’s mind, or isn’t positive (especially since I am a meditation teacher I should be spiritual and positive). But here’s a couple of things these friends aren’t aware of…

One, I don’t view social media and my presence on it as only for the highlight reel…of only sharing a curated, positive view of my life. Life is not all perfect, and positive, happy and amazing. Life is a mixture of dark and light, and I believe in exposing all the parts of it.

Two, my feeds are my corner of the digital world. It’s my choice to post anything I feel compelled to post, and your choice to like, dislike, share or unfollow. I consciously choose what to post on each platform. While your comments may be well intentioned to point out things you think I might not be noticing, when they are sent with judgement and trying to silence my voice, there’s no space for them on my wall, feed or in box.

Third, perhaps it’s getting older but I am tired of being anything different than who I am…fully. In all areas of my life. I’m not going to act one way with one group and another way with a different group. The old people pleaser in me used to do that. Integrating all the parts of me, in all situations, is the path I currently on.

Four, with the current political climate…the targeting of vulnerable groups…I will not keep quiet. While I may not be targeted, or left behind in the plans on the table, I will not allow others to be. Who am I if not the values I hold dear? Living those values, for me, requires speaking up and taking action. They do the world no good otherwise.

So…here’s to being unapologetically and fully who you are meant to be. To being conscious and self reflective and living a life in line with the values you claim…both in person and online.
