At the end of the day, do not allow anyone else's insecurities or selfishness, or any environment , to prevent you from being the maximized you. We all have gifts and talents. Do not allow yourself to settle for unproductivity because there is no opportunity to express yourself.
I have said this before. If there is no road to express yourself, you must create an avenue that you can use your gifts. Do not wait on that special moment to be recognized. Create moments that your gifts will be revealed.
