Be true to yourself... that is seriously hard-won wisdom.
Frankly, it’s bold as hell that you’d even read a blog post about being true to yourself written by a lesbian with not one but two ex-husbands. Okay, perhaps you didn’t know that, but it’s not because I’ve been keeping secrets.
Let’s begin with a mind-blowing piece of Oriah Mountain Dreamer’s “The Invitation”:
It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
I want to know if you can
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.
Did she just say, “I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself“? Um, yes… she certainly did. This may leave us wondering, what does that even mean?
