How to Let Go of Being Right to Be Who You Are

Needing to be right is not who you are.

“You only try and protect your position when you don’t have much faith in where you’re at. Just like you only come on to other people, about their position, when you don’t have much faith in where you’re at.”

“A compassionate being is what he or she is, creating a space in which other people can be what they need to be, not what you want them to be.”

“You’re no longer flamboyant in your protest. Your protest is somewhat more effective because you less define yourself as them.

“Constantly seeking the external hit because you’re afraid fully to confront your possible bankruptcy. Because your model of yourself has in it so much unworthiness, that you’re afraid that if you really stopped and looked, and “be-ed” it would be too ugly, too frightening, it wouldn’t be enough.”
