There is a pristine place inside each one of us. The place that is pure, unadulterated and your place of inner wisdom. It is your job number one to protect this place from all the negative energies given to you.
There are people going to cross their boundaries, try to evade you or make you feel insignificant and insecure. Let them do their job, and your job is to be kind, be humble and draw a boundary around that pristine place inside your heart. No one, absolutely no one has the right to enter inside those boundaries. Remember, you will be respected for being kind and will be trodden for allowing yourself to be trodden. Discernment for creating the boundaries is what the wise human executes.
The world is a beautiful place my friend. No beautiful human being will make another one feel less than beautiful. Be the demonstration of real beauty.
