Shrinking will not serve you
Hiding cuts off growth
We need other people
It is difficult at first
But always the question circles
Am I who I am because that is who I think I am?
And if so
Could I think myself into a version
Difficult to live inside

Intriguing idea…sort of like a silent version of neurolinguistic programming?
Yes – I’ve studied NLP and find it makes a lot of sense – putting it into practice takes a bit of work but well worth it
Ha, yes .. the eternal conundrum 😉
Theoretically, yes … but in real life – it’s a tad more, hmmm, complicated : )
I’ve always heard we are the greatest of the 3-5 people we are mostly around. This is beautiful Kate. I used to want to be perfect. And people said, “you just can’t be perfect!” To which my reply is, “well, I sure can be better than myself so I think shooting for perfect is a good goal!” (knowing full well I’ll never meet it; but that’s ok. I like who God says I am ❣). It’s easy for me to shrink. Being introverted is my tendency-But I truly do need others to help remind me of who I am and to help me be a better “me”.
Lovely Karla and although perfection is unattainable, like you, I think we can constantly strive to improve and learn.
❣️ thank you, Kate
🙌 this is everything. Perfectly put.
