Nelson Mandela once said "There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you."
I just wanna know if this saying mean "shrinking yourself in order that other people will not feel insecure when being near you is not a wise thing to do", is it right? If not, please clarify.
It does mean that, and 'shrinking' can also mean pulling back from contact, not expressing yourself.
it could also means to try to not be notice
