Christine, thanks for sharing
“It is easy to take on our story as our identity. Our careers and our labels become our identity”.
I believe the heart is stuffed with so much pain that their story is a way to keep them safe from having to look. They fear what they may discover if they inquire into what is really happening in their life.
Many live life along a pain and pleasure continium. Avoiding pain and seeking pleasure. They live on the surface of life, superficially, never really knowing what it means to love.
The world lacks human connection. We all want deeper relationships. This requires deep work.
Work not to peel back the onion but to see that life is creativity itself.
That’s really how you learn to love.
