To engender understanding, is to invite understanding; the familial, familiar, and kindred spirits naturally gravitate toward likeness and harmonic resonance.
A square peg can fit into a large enough round hole, but that level of compromise will exhaust you, irritate you, fight you and stress you, again and again. All that squandered energy invites anxiety, worry, emptiness and numbness — likely a primary reason for the strong bias in our society toward surviving instead of thriving; the tribal, carnal, predictable and crude dominates the intellectual, spiritual, spontaneous and refined.
This isn’t to suggest an arrest to raw, unabashed passion and wide-eyed pursuit. Just the opposite: get into your element to explore and delve into the untapped and beautiful, real, you.
The haze of undermining your values asks too much. Break it to remake it and evaporate the fog that loves only to persist.
You are more. You are enough. Clear the slate and let the resonant co-creators manifest.
