our various faces and the core self

There's the strong core self, and there's who we are in different situations. And those various things that we are in various situations, those connect with the core self. So, who I am at work comes out of both the situation, and my core self. It's a meeting of the two. I don't ignore the situation and just be myself. I don't ignore myself and totally let the situation dictact how I act. Rather, both inform how I act.

I think it's like those circles that overlap, with each circle being a different face and the core self in the middle... you know the diagram I mean?

One thing I'm learning is I do need to be true to myself whoever I'm with, but it's OK for me to do that in different ways with different people, as appropriate.

Wow, a comment! :)

Yeah, I think I know what you mean. That's a good image.
