Reclaming Your True Self

Casting-Off Our Hand-Me-Downs So We Can Live An Authentic Life

By Angela Dunning

In order to live an unburdened life, one which is wholly aligned with our true values, gifts and attitudes we must take the time to discern what truly belongs to us, and what was passed down by our parents and culture; but particularly by our parents. This is not to cast-out blame but rather to help us in the process of becoming who we are truly meant to be. For it is an irrefutable truth that we cannot live out another’s life purpose, nor can we live out the sadness and shame of their unlived life. Yet, many people do live such a life which is a great sadness and waste. Carl Jung said: “Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.” 42 THEEDENMAGAZINE.COM e February 2019
