While it’s important to be true to yourself, it’s also vital to remember that the self you are being true to is a dynamic process, not a frozen and fixed state.
Your sense of who you are is always changing, always being refined, always expanding, always being upgraded by new experiences and new information.
Our goals, commitments, and relationships are healthy when they honor this self, but limiting when they are pursued at the expense of this self.
Here’s today’s two cents:
Make sure your plans, promises, and pursuits are a reflection of the person you’re becoming and not merely a residual effect of the person you once were.
It’s better to leave an outdated lifestyle behind, no matter how comfortable it may be, than it is to abandon your right and responsibility to be an evolving entity.
