Being born with a cute curved shell and adorable orange cheek patches can make it seem like it would be so easy to be yourself.
After all, who wouldn’t want to be you?
The cuteness! The preciousness! The perfectness!
But then again, it is all a matter of perspective.
To some beings, just the sight of your olive-colored body sends their salivary glands into high gear.
And those bright orange cheek patches? They are like beacons lighting the path to the snack bar.
Yet, this is who you are.
And it is one thing to focus on staying alive and quite another to endeavor to learn how to thrive.
By studying up on all the ways a hungry predator can creep up on you, you also learn to identify the other kind of beings – the ones who don’t want to eat you….they simply want to meet you.
These are the beings who will not just accept you just the way you are, but will break out the festivities when you finally give them the gift of wonderful, irreplaceable, one-of-a-kind YOU.
