We can look at the same painting twice and see very different things. Not because the painting has changed, but because we ourselves have. – Jocelyn Soriano

It’s a bit scary to reveal ourselves too much to other people, to share what it is that makes us laugh, what makes us cry, the things we like or not like at all. It’s scary because after revealing these things, we may be judged by them, and the judgement could hurt because we have been criticized just where we are most naked and vulnerable. Furthermore, the judgement could persist even if we have already outgrown such things or made a different path. People’s opinion of us can be stuck even if we have already changed.

Despite that however, let us remain confident with our own path of growth. Let us not be confined to other people’s idea of us, but continue to be ourselves, even if we have not remained as the kind of person they expected us to be.

“Behold, I am making all things new.” – Revelations 21, WEBBE
