Million dollar question –
What is the quality we are choosing to live everyday, if we cannot be just one person which is real and true?
WHY is it so hard to accept and allow ourselves to be just one person?
What if peeling away the un-real face and being real is what the world actually wants?
What if we were the same with our partners, family, neighbours, best friend, big boss at work, the police and the pope if he came knocking on our door?
What if we started to take small steps to be honest about how we are choosing to live and become real and remain consistent and the same with everyone on earth, no matter what their background?
Think about it – as a tiny baby we had permission to just be who we are and there was nothing outside of us that could change that. We were adored, loved and cherished from day dot so we never wanted more.
So when did it all change and when did we think it was ok to not be who we truly are and live a Double Life?
