September '09 Insights

Instead of trying to figure who I am, how can I let myself be myself?

What I do is not who I am. I am greater than my job and obstacles. My job is a small part of my identity. It can't hurt me.

I affirm that I am already who I want to be, doing what I want to do. I am greater than any labels. I can't be trapped.

I begin here. It's possible to be happy and fulfilled. I don't have to fear death or struggle to live. I can accept circumstances, stop struggling, and give myself what I need.

  • Up until this point, my life has felt heavy. Life has felt jagged and unsafe - compared to having all my needs met as a child. I have abhorred expressing emotion, but the only emotions I can suppress are happy ones. So I only experience fear, anger and sadness.

  • It's more important to me to be happy than to be right.
