Please read Part 1 for context. Thank you.
As I examined the patterns in my interactions with specific individuals and situations – during the course of attending meet up group events over the summer – I came to the conclusion that I had deviated from a fundamental principle. The principle is summed up in several lines from Shakespeare’s play – Hamlet – when Polonius stated:
“This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
My inventory revealed that I had deviated from being true to myself – by compromising my values. My inventory revealed that I had become lax in being true to myself in my attempt (s) to assimilate myself into specific situations and groups of people. With my awareness – and to again be true to myself – I made the decision to adjust the way in which I plan to interact with people in social situations during future meet up group events.
By making adjustments, I recommitted myself to being true to myself. By making adjustments I recommitted myself to being true in my interactions with specific people and situations – during future meet up group events. By making adjustments, I recommitted myself to being myself.
