I was watching a show and a character was faced with a choice where one was about being a better person and the other was about learning to be himself more fully. The question sort of fits in with differing views of the path but it was presented in a way that shed a different light on it for me.
I try to understand myself and be authentic to who I am, but I also want to grow and change. Sometimes life only offers binaries, its a tough call having to choose. Thankfully I don't have to right now, I prefer complexity and integration.
How do you try to live your life? Do you want to better express who you really are or do you want to grow and evolve?
