Your perception of me is your reality, not mine
I can never be more or less than your perception of me, to you. If you want to see more, you will. If you want to see less, you will. However, your perception of me does not have to be my perception of me. I continue to learn more and more how to see the essence of who I am through open and honest eyes, accepting the things I may not be able to change and changing what I deem necessary to change. It is also a good practice to realize that each moment we are physically renewing ourselves to not be the same as we were yesterday. We evolve and things evolve and change, and we get to determine what side of that change we will participate in.
