Natural

'Natural' book cover by Jina Wallwork.

There is a natural authenticity that only exists in solitude. When you connect to others there is always the challenge of retaining who you are while also evolving into something more. When a relationship is created, we become something larger than the individual. This can be a beautiful experience where the best of who we are is enhanced by the connection or it can be a process of endless sacrifice. The pieces of who we are don’t always fit with the personality of another. You can become silenced by the connection. The undesired aspects of your personality become discarded and forgotten. You can continue forward, but eventually, you will see a glimpse of your reflection and you’ll be confronted by your own invisibility and a profound sense of loss. How do you rediscover your own nature?
