You are golden. Explanations and apologies are not prerequisites by those who love and accept you in whole without condition.
Holiday or not, you still have the right to be yourself.
Lovingly return judgments, off-handed comments about your lifestyle, back-handed compliments, inappropriate inquisitions and second-guessing to the original sender.
These messages are not your truth. They don't define your life.
They are not yours to marinate your beautiful heart within.
Choose what is worthy of your light and infuse your everything with all you desire and deserve.
