I'm still finding pieces of myself that I don't like and that surprise me. My voice encapsulated in harsh words, or an authoritarian message in a text too hastily sent. I step back, cringe and feel ashamed. There is a fine line between being authentic and playing it sweet. The goal is to be aware of the feeling, process and understand it before responding. That allows for acknowledgment and acceptance of my less attractive parts and a response that is intellectualized and formulated to reflect a higher being, the one I am destined to become, once I grow into it.
