This is a topic that has come up with my clients a number of times lately!
We often hide our whole selves or parts of us under layers and disguises in order to protect ourselves. The threats might be perceived or real, we feel that we can’t show who we really are.
But if people don’t know who we really are, they also don’t know how to best work with us, interact with us, communicate with us. And more crucially, they won’t feel that they can show us who they really are.
Showing our humanity and our true self wins every time.
