We can’t avoid it
For it’s what keeps us safe and protected
But when the time comes
We must shed it…
And Move on…
To hold onto it means
to carry dead weight
To not move at all!
For… what we call ‘identity is our snakeskin!
If we have a narrow identity, we’ll fear and avoid anything that threatens that narrow identity.
If we have no identity then what’s the point of doing anything at all?
So what’s the solution?
A working solution is to have a loose and broad, flexible and transient sense of identity.
It helps us stand and move but does not cement us into a hole.
For to grow and to really live means
To shed the snakeskin when there’s need
