Bravery is being surrounded by people you feel obligated by your conditioning to fit in with and you choose to be authentically 100% you both inside and outwardly. You accept them without judgement and be freely ‘you’ without the need to defend or justify.
If you are in doubt, try it whenever you are with others…see after an initial unease just how liberating it is to be truly you, but in a conscious way without prejudice of yourself or them.
Truth within and truth to the exterior.
Ask yourself, why do I really do this or that or whatever it is you are doing?
But ask it and be brutally honest with yourself with the answer.
I suspect you’ll be doing less of many things, if at all, and maybe you might then have time to start some other things that really matter and make a difference. You know the ones that you say you never have time for.
Brutal honesty is hard as it requires us to be open about our self-image, ego and motives. It requires bravery and being vulnerable.
