Do You Ever Expose Yourself in Public?

Exposed

I’m trying to be more transparent, more authentic, and live in alignment with my true self…. and it is harder than I thought it would be. First, I have to discern the true me that lies buried in a myriad of misbeliefs, then I have to give myself permission to be myself, and finally I have to find the courage to expose myself in public. My ego likes to be the one in the forefront and keep the real me hidden. To do this, it uses guilt and fear. It tries to convince me that being me is selfish, especially when it doesn’t please others, and that what other people think of me is of vital importance. But I know intellectually that those are not true. Now, it is just a matter of going out there and doing it, actually exposing myself and being authentic to prove to the rest of me that I won’t get arrested.

So, how do you feel about exposing yourself in public?
