An inspiring set of words from the man himself. Les Brown
"If you find yourself sharing your gift in places, and with people, that do not seem to want it, don't continue to beat your head up against the wall. Release them. Let them have their own journey.
Life is too short to convince people to be aware of who you are and the value that you bring.
Love yourself enough to remove yourself from any situation where you are constantly making someone a priority who has made you an option. The lips of the wise are sealed to those who refuse to hear and are comfortable being ignorant.
Begin to carve out a place for yourself in life to do the work that you are called to do, for those who are ready to receive it. Your gifts and time are precious. Take care to nurture and develop them.
Only in this way can you live a life that is purposeful, meaningful and free of frustration. You are a gift to the world. You deserve to be recognized for who you are."
