If the shoe fits...

"If the shoe fits..."

Normally, people use this expression with a somewhat negative tone. For example, if a person complains about receiving judgment or criticim, others may say, "If the shoe fits, wear it." In other words, they suggest that if criticism applies, we must accept it.

On the other hand, Dakota's play made me think about this common saying in a positive light. If we find ourselves resisting our dreams, or hiding our talents, we may also say, "If the shoe fits, why should we struggle and agonize? Why not accept the higher truth about ourselves and become a force for good in the world?" Other may seek to use our dreams for their own selfish purposes, but only we hold the power to fulfill our greatest purpose.
