Many of us have been educated in a way that makes us believe that the world needs us to be a certain way in order to be fine. We have been taught by society, by our parents, or by religion, to even shut down some parts of us, so as to be acceptable. But that doesn’t work, because we were born as a gift to the world, and the world ends up missing us when we try to be another person. The truth is rather that the world needs us the way we really are, with our particularities, with our values, in order to prosper. That’s the way WE all need you. Any other version deprives us of somebody precious. YOU.
