Only let us live up to what we have already attained. Phil. 3:16

Heres the problem with the being yourself mantra – a lot of people dont know who they are in the first place!

Kinda scary!

The reality is that due to the epidemic of traumatic experiences early on in life many of us never come to this knowing who we are. For example we were never given the space the affirmation and nurture we needed early on in life. But we learn how to cope.

Then we expect someone else later on in life to fix what another man or woman (maternal or paternal figure) broke or didnt build up and solve the who am I mistery for us.

Cant happen! What one man (or woman) broke another one cant fix.

Only hope is in letting go of the false self and letting God & people who truly care and have been affirmed themselves (not in word only) to affirm who they see you to be in Him!

Turns out its a journey not an event.

So we need to figure out if we want to take the journey alone or share it with someone else (as in marriage friendship business partnerships etc.) And if you do decide to share the journey with others be respectful to their process as you expect them to be to your own. Cross the boundaries once twice…or more – dont be surprised if youre asked to get off the bus! No one likes being punished for the pain someone else has inflicted on you!

Be strong as u press in on your way of discovering who you are!
Brothers I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead… Phil. 3:13
