We hide because…
we were always told to be polite, discreet and to never get too full of ourselves.
we learned to be humble at all costs.
we are unhappy, anxious or angry and we don’t want to reveal this to others.
we want to be living a different life.
we feel lonely or depressed.
we never learned to love ourselves.
we feel like we are not pretty enough, smart enough, thin enough, funny enough.
we feel dismissed or unappreciated.
we are waiting for permission to do things differently.
we’re carrying around a heavy weight from the past and refuse to put it down.
we are bored and don’t have the energy to make a change in our lives.
showing up feels too risky and we don’t think failure is an option.
we don’t want others to criticize us.
it’s too bright in the sunlight and we don’t want the responsibility of success.
saying no feels easier than saying yes.
we’re not telling the truth.
honesty feels too painful and out of reach.
we don’t want to face our fears.
It’s time to step out of the shadows
and show our true selves.
