"Be soft but unafraid to conquer."
Growing up I think I struggled with who I wanted to be and how I wanted others to see. As a little girl I was very quiet and very shy, so I guess you could call me soft. But because I got bullied and walked over I realized that being soft was not going to work for me, so growing in to high school I became unafraid. I had a strong personality and if anything I was going to be the one walking over others before I let others walk over me. However, I don't think going full blown unafraid really worked for me either because inherently, I am not that kind of person and I didn't want to be that kind of person. So in college I began to learn how to be more me - the softer me, but to not forget what I learned about being bold and unafraid. I think I'm still learning how to find the perfect balance because it seems like in each new stage of my life I've always gone back to being the soft and quiet little girl I was twenty years ago. But from my experience I can tell you that to be soft you must also be unafraid in order to conquer.
