For connections and relationships with other people to work and be true, we do not need to change who we are. We need to be our true self, we need to be 100% ourself. Not the many roles that our ego wants us to act out.
If others are unable to be comfortable with us being our true essence then it is not our challenge.
It does not mean that we have to be hostile as that is the action of the mind and its ego. We can be respectful for of others but at the same time being true to ourself.
When we are clear to others that we respect our true essence then others will reciprocate and respect us.
