NAME A TIME YOU FOUND YOURSELF NOT BEING TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE AND ACTING IN A WAY THAT YOU THOUGHT THE OTHER PERSON WANTED YOU TO ACT?

  1. Unfortunately, for a long time I didn’t know who I was, or how I would act because I was so isolated and controlled. Now I have a new freedom and the joy of figuring it all out. I’m having a great time letting my true colors shine through 🙂

  2. When I went back to work for the same employer I had worked for 10 years prior, they placed me in an office as the branch manager. The only problem was that the office they placed me in had an office manager they were having me go in and take control of. Her name was Luisa, just like me! They did not want her to quit. They wanted us to work as a team. So, I was asked if I could let her keep going as Luisa and I use another name. That did not sit well with me, of course! I felt that we could have both kept our names and worked out the phone calls asking for Luisa. They could have asked for Luisa, the branch manger. Or they could have asked for Luisa, the office manager. I just let them have their way. I was not happy about it. I went as Maria! You know what? She end up quitting after a month, and then we had problems with me going back to my name…Luisa! Stupid, huh?

  3. YOU GOT ME A BIT CONFUSED. HOW IS LAUGH WITH MARIA GOING?
    ONCE I WAS MISTAKEN FOR ANOTHER CHAP AND THRASHED BY MY TEACHER.

  4. I wish people would leave us to be who we want to be! LOL 🙂

  5. Wow, a loaded question! I was in my mid-twenties before I made any real attempt at embrassing myself. Amazing the scripts that others write for us if we let them. That first step into the light where you say “here I am, flaws and all” is the hardest.

  6. i spent many years
    denying my gifts and worth
    my life crashed full stop

    What a sweet, sweet gift you give. I sat here crying. We so All need to let those words sink down deep. Am rebuilding my life. The past couple everything crashed and much fell away. Has been cowrazy challenging, but I’ve come to learn that what was transpiring on my outside was just a reflection of the death of Who I’m Not! Whole New Time NOW. Glorious gift I’m receiving. Family perfectly healthy and happy and we have great stories under our belt! Very grateful! Thank You Doraz!!! Cheers and Namaste. 🙂
