When you know who you are, you have a built in strength.
You do not have to be tough.
While you are figuring out who you are, you are in a protective chrysalis, a cocoon.
You have enough to eat.
You have whatever time you need to complete your study, reflection, training, and change.
When you emerge, fully ready, you know who you are.
You have all you need.
You can be strong and tough in a way that bespeaks confidence.
You do not even consider defensiveness.
You have seen your place.
You now occupy it.
There is room for everyone to do this.
That’s what we are here to learn.
