Open the lid and look inside.

When we do not allow ourselves to be loved for who we are, but only for fulfilling the expectations of others, we cannot develop an identity of our own. This is the tragedy of our times. We do not exist if we are not met. We are complicit in this, too. The answer? Open the lid and look inside. Let the inside out. Discover. Meet vulnerably. Pain, compassion, helplessness are among our greatest gifts. We cannot meet the expectations of others, but we can surely exceed them.
