Live Fearlessly

BE Fearlessly AUTHENTIC

BE Fearlessly AUTHENTIC

That is what a card I have says. Thankfully I now know what it means to me, but for a long time, that was not the case. For 40+ years my [SILENT] answer was always "What the hell is THAT supposed to mean?"  

I mean, aren't we all who we are? Who else could we be? And why do I need to be so damn fearless about it? I'm quite comfortable where I am.  Ooo or what about the old, "Just Be Yourself!"

For some reason, that line got me even more upset. My [SILENT] reply "That would be great if I only felt confident with who I was!" Then I would feel that uncomfortable feeling like something was missing. What was I missing?
