What Do You See When You Look in the Mirror – Published at the elephantjournal.com

When we are invited into a conversation with a person going through a period of self-discovery, it is an invitation of trust.

To be fortunate enough that someone chose to share their growth journey is an experience not to be taken lightly. It is amazing to be included in this self-discovery process, because some valuable lessons can be learned along the way about ourselves.

It is very humbling when another can share their inner darkest demons with us.

My eyes are now wide open to the path ahead of me.
