Maybe they’re afraid of you because you are too honest at times when people are attracted by sweet-talkers and manipulators who make lies sound better than the truth. Maybe your truth is far too bitter for those who don’t want to feel and taste your genuine self- the people who only want the cherry on top of the cake.
They might feel threatened by you because you know exactly what you want in life, when the rest of them feel lost in their search. They might be so caught up in their insecurities, that they reject everybody who follows their own path. Even worse, they might be simply used to being in the company of people who are insecure and have no idea who they actually are.
Maybe they’re just afraid of you because you don’t want to take part in their games where everybody is so consumed by winning and feeding their ego , and those who refuse to participate are considered losers. In this case, you’re probably surrounded by people who became experts in playing this game, that they don’t want to go back and try again because that would mean that they’re at the start of the line all over again.
They might be afraid because you say things that they don’t want to hear; and it’s totally normal since they got used to the lies that they have been served for so long. These people believe in the image they created of themselves, not in who they really are. Maybe your words sound so unfamiliar to them that they simply don’t understand them or don’t believe in them.
Maybe you scare them because you pay attention. You are a truth teller and you don’t forget what they said when they were angry or vulnerable; you pay attention to their eyes and body language and the tone of their voice and gestures. Maybe they’re not used to being seen or heard and your attention makes them feel uncomfortable, because it means that they have to take their false mask off.
Maybe they’re scared of you because you are aware of their fears, and yet you are not being overly cautious. Maybe you’re carefree with your heart and feelings, and they don’t know how to cope with them; it confuses them. They actually can’t deal with anything that affects their routine and deluded reality. Maybe your heart rate is a bit faster and they can’t keep up with you at all.
Maybe they’re afraid of you because you don’t need them; because they know you can survive without them; because they know you won’t wait for them to see what they keep refusing to ; because they know you stand up for yourself; because they know you won’t be just another number in their phone .
Maybe they’re afraid of you because you appreciate yourself; because you’re strong enough to let go and leave and that you are smart enough to know your value. Maybe they got so used to the pedestal that they’ve been put on that they have no idea how to function any where else.
Regardless of the reasons, Keep being the genuine person you are. Stand in your sincerity, with your strength, your goodness, love, understanding, with your words, in your truth with your eyes with your presence, and your ability to read them. Keep reading until you find somebody as brave as yourself. The one who won’t be afraid of you; you will be with someone as scary and as real as you.
