A little over two years ago I started this journey I'm on to live my giftings out loud. What do I mean by that? I mean instead of only sharing the greatness inside of me with those who knew me personally, I made a decision to share it with the world. You see who you were created to be isn't just for you and those that are close to you. God created you to be a part of the entire body working in tandem to accomplish all that He desires for the world. When you "save yourself" for those that you think love you; understand you; accept you or whatever you cause the rest of the body to suffer. Ephesians 4:16 is clear, it says From Him the whole body [the church, in all its various parts], joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies, when each part is working properly, causes the body to grow and mature, building itself up in [unselfish] love(AMP). You are one of those joints, and the rest of us can't grow and mature without you!
