It's scary...to be rejected because I'm trying to be myself.
Sometimes I have the courage, but other times I don't.
I can't insist people to understand me more than I am (even more than God understands me), but the fear of rejection is a real thing. That feeling is real.
There are times when I can feel safe and rest assured that I'm—the sinner—totally accepted and loved by God. But now, I just can't enjoy that truth—that God will never reject me because I'm acting authentically to become my true-self.
