“How The Tin Man Found His Brain”

Page 70:

“It can be very challenging to hold our own power in the midst of the crowd, worse yet if we don’t actually understand the crowd, or entirely agree with it. If we have not determined where and how we fit, or do not fit-in with the crowd and why, how are we really a part of it?”

I find this to be a very interesting topic with many roads that lead to many different places.  At the end of the roads the difference is not fearing versus not caring.  Do people understand what I am saying? Do I change what I am saying so people understand me? Do I worry that they agree with me? Am I really authentic? If you can’t be honest with yourself, you can’t be honest with others.  What road do you WANT to go down?  Great points and a great chapter.
