This kind of honesty goes a long way in teaching us about aligning with our own inner truth. When we step out of what is true for us, we pay a price. If we try to be someone else or something else, or if we try to be somewhere we are not, it's like trying to swim against the current.

In the mirage of a man I lost my life, and in the projection of another I built one. Both came down at a different pace and weight. This is the crux. I now stand in that ugly place of believing in myself and my ability to do the impossible, and I am still not able to leave this room.
