"Whatever we feel, however deeply we feel it, most of us learn to camouflage our true emotions. We show the world only what we imagine will be acceptable and keep the rest secret and hidden. Thus, no one really sees us, no one ever knows who we are. Even if people love us, they love us for who we pretend to be - so we never really feel loved at all. But when we name our feelings truthfully - first to ourselves, then to others - when we speak about the sorrow, the terror, and the grief, we invite a rush of sympathetic vibration from those who are suddenly free to enter into our lives, to become allies, to love and touch and share our deepest hearts. The truth sets us free to enter fully into relationship with another, opening the door to a mutuality of love and support."
Today, with wisdom, practice speaking more authentically to yourself and others. This means sharing your grief, fears, regrets, and insecurities; it also means sharing deep love, joy, gratitude, and pride.
