When shame or uncertainty surfaces, it can be challenging to pick the authentic path. It’s tempting to make ourselves small. To try to act in a way that would appease or appeal to someone else. To try to take up less space and disappear into the background.

This same opportunity exists in life. Look for those moments of awareness and seize them. You always have a choice about what to do next.
