"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are!" ~ E.E. Cummings
From the time we are born, we are all taught rules, beliefs, values and ways of being in the world. We take the influences in our lives and conform, changing our behaviour, sacrificing who we really are, so we can be taken care of, liked, loved and approved of. Over time we develop a way of being that creates patterns, blocks, and coping mechanisms that prevent us from finding our true calling, dreams and joy.
