Why Does It Take Courage To Be Or Become Who We Really Are?
I found that speaking what is true to me and openly expressing my values can feel like being naked when everyone else is fully dressed. It can be really exposing and scary to stand up for ourselves, to say NO and to express a view that isn’t popular. There is a risk that we might be disapproved of, rejected and disliked.
So, becoming who we really are requires courage to withstand the discomfort of disapproval, conflict, and rejection. And this means sometimes having to let go of relationships – yes. It can also lead to a great deal of respect from others and real connection.
For me the real pearl of wisdom is this: ‘Being true to ourselves demands accepting and loving ourselves, even if others don’t.’
This can be a real challenge as well as a real superpower!
