We can join reputable clubs, show up at important gatherings, do endless hours of volunteer work, talk about integrity, write articles on social change, and many more things that tell the world about our character. But if we go home to ourselves and think or behave differently, we live a lie. And we live with the constant threat of being exposed, of being seen for what we are - an impostor.
Give it up. Start right now in this moment to be who you know yourself to be, truly, deeply. Let go of your need to look good in someone else's eyes. Stop trying to care about something you think you "should" but don't. Embrace who you are on every level. Then ... feel the tension leave your body as you accept yourself in all your magnificent imperfection.
