E. Cummins said, “It takes courage to be who you really are”. What does that mean, “who you really are”? Over the decades, over your life experiences and the many relationships you have had by this age, it is really easy to start putting layers of protection on yourself. You may be very vulnerable to some people that you trust, but you may be keeping yourself protected from other situations. Who you really are is that person that God created you to be, without the layers of protection, without the limiting beliefs, and without the baggage that we carry due to pain and troubled times in the past.
