My true self –
The self I long to meet
The one where I fit nicely in my own skin
And equally well in my community,
As if we are suited to one another
The one where goodness is not fake
But a natural expression of a maturing soul,
And where continuing growth is the sure future
The one where I can embrace the flawed reality
That is both where I live and who I am,
And still find peace and beauty … and firm hope
The one where I dare to join the dance
That is the world’s becoming,
The very echo and response to the Holy Three.
This is the self you call me to be.
This is the self I will become.
This is the dance of life.

I found difficulties to be my true self 😣
I think we all find it difficult – but when we do – or when others around us do – it makes things so much better.
I think I need new circle people that doing it bcs I don’t think that peoples around me now being their true self.I just didn’t see that from them.
Good friends can really help, that is true. Even one can make a real difference. Perhaps your efforts will help them find a way to be true. It is hard, as we know.
