Accepting who you are

 • Many of us are frightened to look within ourselves, and fear has us put up walls so thick we no longer remember who we really are.

• Whatever we refuse to recognize about ourselves has a way of rearing its head and making itself known when we least expect it.

• Our society nurtures the illusion that all the rewards go to the people who are perfect. But many of us are finding out that trying to be perfect is costly.
• For when I can love all of me, I will love all of you.


“By facing these aspects of ourselves,
we become free to experience our glorious totality:
the good and the bad, the dark and the light.
It is by embracing all of who we are
that we earn the freedom to choose what we do in this world.
As long as we keep hiding, masquerading, and projecting
what is inside us, we have no freedom to be and no freedom
to choose.”
