Have you ever felt like you are "too much"?

Too loud, too talkative, too many accessories, too colorful... the list goes on. I feel this way a lot, especially about outfits. Which is strange, because I have zero interest in people staring at me. I just LOVE over-the-top style! What is it about my heart that wants more ruffle, more pattern, and a big 'ole bubble hem at the bottom of my skirt? If I worked in a creative office, I would for sure try to pull this off. Even knowing it would potentially present a faulty image to co-workers: Why is she so flashy? Why does she want everyone to stare? Well I don't, but I am, and I really don't know why I was made this way. It just makes me smile. And I hope it makes someone else smile, too. Have you ever felt like you are "too much"?
