Who we are, where we are and how we got here are a result of the experiences we have to experience in order to learn how to improve ourselves while we inhabit this world. We have patterns of thinking that we need to re-examine not only so we can identify malicious ways of thinking but so that we can learn from the choices we make and by doing so strengthen our weaknesses so that we can move on to our next lesson. Our search for ourselves begins with the true acceptance of our faults and our patterns and in doing so, we can find forgiveness.
Our pride shouldn’t keep up from sharing the experience with others. If we let our pride keep us from sharing our lessons we cannot contribute to those around us. In sharing the process we are opening ourselves up to further insight for everyone involved. We have people around us who accept us for who we are should we choose to acknowledge them. We’re afraid to be ourselves for fear of losing the acceptance that we have, however tenuous.
