It is interesting to observe how often we adapt to those around us. We may have a “work self,” a “partner self,” a “parent self,” and so on. Yes, we often need to modulate our words and actions to get along and to facilitate a smooth flow in relationship with others.
And it is also vital to have time spent alone, to explore your true nature, without influence. Whether it is on the yoga mat, the meditation cushion, or just resting in nature, your true self is calling.
In mindful presence,
We are constantly invited to be who we are.
―Henry David Thoreau
