We have to become willing to show others our true selves if we want to be
loved for who we are. Many of us have spent most of our lives unwilling to let
others get to know us, rejecting their attempts to love us. We may have gone
through life putting on a front for the world, presenting an image of success
and self-confidence that we thought would protect us from judgment and
rejection. We may have recoiled from others, shying away from them because
we thought they would only love the image we presented and not the real
person. But we were the ones who prevented them from seeing the real
person. We were the ones who often hid behind an image that we thought
would be acceptable to others, one that would keep us safe. But this only
kept us isolated and alone, and unable to receive love. When we finally
allow others to see who we really are, we will allow love to enter our lives
and make us whole again.
We must start acting in conjunction with the person that we really are
underneath the false images.
When we show our true selves more often than not we will find true and
Once we learn that we will not always be hurt and rejected we will feel more
confident in showing our real identities to others.
Once we gain the confidence to show our true selves we will finally be able
to connect with others in deeper, more meaningful, more spiritual ways.
