    Letting others see us

    The puzzle slowly gets put together as life moves on, but this can cause the inner struggle, and awareness, to become sharper, and more painful since the opposing elements in the psyche become more apparent. So growth can often seem to be losing ground, when in fact, the simple ability to see one's self truthfully is all that is happening. This can be freeing since self-knowledge, while not leading to more peace, the opposite really can slowly turn a life around to something much more beautiful and fulfilling, since healing can only be the fruit of this kind of knowledge. Relationships change, the ability to listen increases, defenses are less, since there is not so much to defend anymore. It is ok to be less than perfect, and also for others to see that.-Br.MD
