I heard your TED talk about vulnerability, I've listened to it several times now and really appreciate what you have to say, it makes sense to me. One of the parts that I find meaningful but which I struggle with is your quote regarding the people you called wholehearted, that they were willing to let go of who they thought they should be in order to be who they were, that they had the courage to be imperfect. I struggle with this as I believe it to be true and I do recognize my imperfections but I don’t know who I really am anymore. How do I let go of who I think I am supposed to be if I don’t know who I am?

What you say makes sense that what is lacking is a sense of connection and that I need to be open to feeling vulnerable, and to let go of the image I have created of myself for the benefit of the world, so that I can fit in. This is all very academic and makes sense until you have to put it into practice, where do I start? How do I become authentic if I don’t even know who I am anymore?
