Don’t be afraid to give yourself

In every interaction you have – no matter who with – you have a choice in how you respond.

Once choice is politeness, formality, a lack of connectivity.

This is the easy thing to do…. the safe thing to do.

It doesn’t require much risk.  You don’t have to expose who you really are.  You are not risking rejection.

The other choice is to give yourself.  Share your heart.  Your passion.  Be open and without boundaries or reservations.

This other type of interaction usually leads to interesting discussions, friendship, love, and connection.

In this way you are giving a piece of your heart.  You are giving the real you – your attention, and your presence.

This is the hard thing to do. The risky thing to do.

And it provides the most rewarding and “real” connection.

Instead of thinking about what you want to say, or do.  Or what message you want to convey, you engage fully in the present moment, and act from your true intentions. Your true “self”.

It requires great truthfulness.  Mostly to yourself.

And it requires great courage.

However it leads to the greatest rewards.
