We hide behind busyness and perfection because showing up and being ourselves is frightening.

If we learn to step away from the shame we all live with in our minds then we free ourselves from the fear.

Freedom comes when we learn that the stories we shackle ourselves with were created by us.

We are not the shame, the stories or our thoughts. We can come out of hiding.

Improvement versus acceptance

If we are always on a path of self-improvement there will always be a sense of lack as there will always be something to improve. Always a need to judge and compare.

If we are on a path if self-acceptance then not only will we have inner peace but we will grow without our ego looking for perfection. We will become our true self and not judge ourselves or compare ourselves to others.
