You're A Peacock

In A Hen House

Awarded For

Refusing to Water Yourself Down

For the Digestibility of Others

A Little Something to Cheer You On

“I really like them.

Hey, I’m a good person and fun to be with.  

What do I have to do for them to like me?” 

“Honey, they already don't.”


And there lies the keys out of your people pleasing self-imprisonment. 

Take them.


Let yourself out. 

Stop bowing your head and pecking for corn.

They know you've got blue feathers.

Stand up and show them.

That way, we can recognize each other.

Our tribe is strong, too. 

Repeat after me: 

“I will no longer water myself down for the digestibility of other people”. 


Note: The phrase “You’re a Peacock in a Hen House” was said to me by my dear Sisterfriend, Dana Cox Lipe in a deep water conversation. The credit for the term goes to her along with huge thank you for the great advice that day.


Find your favorite Peacock friend and invite them to tea.

Brew your favorite types of tea and fix it just as you both like.  Set an elegant table and drink from gorgeous tea cups or glasses if you prefer iced. 

Toast and say, “We may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we like our custom brew.”

Enjoy each other’s company and embrace a sense of community.
