Growing Up

I just read an article from Gangaji, who has wonderful insights into life. But sometimes I find that her choice of words makes reading them difficult. What she said struck me in my own personal experience; so I sat down and wrote my experience in my own words. Here it is:

For me, growing up means that I am willing to look at the parts of me that I have rejected and have excluded from the IMAGE of who I THINK I am.
Choosing only this image divides me and does not allow me to be whole.
I become a grown-up when I am willing to open all the hidden spaces, include them, and become free of limiting concepts about who I am.
