Loss Equals Gain
Life a life you are proud of, that speaks your heart, that makes people look at you living a life of beauty and seek out what you have. Be the light in this world. If that means letting people go, then let them go. If that means taking risks and standing out, then stand out. If that means going against the norm, then go against it. To be you and different is going to result in loss of people, things, thinking patterns, and the familiar you were accustomed to. But it is going to also result in the gain of purpose, of identity, of love, and those things are far superior to whatever will be graciously taken away out of protection of your soul.
