Sometimes, we get confused about what is true and what stretches the truth when it comes to ourselves and our endeavors.

We are getting to the point now, so close to the redemption, that what we may have believed to have been the whole truth about ourselves and our lives is really the outer shell of a much deeper reality. The pain, the constraint, the difficulties, the struggles, the “mixed bag” of human emotions and frailties, the imperfection, the low self-esteem . . . this is not who we are at our core.

The process of this shift may feel confusing, similar to a breakdown, but it is, in fact, a breakthrough, and is part of the evolving redemption.
