“Without true Self-identity we’ll find that living for the fun of it is nothing more than an impossible dream. And the nose goes back to the grindstone, the heavy backpack of responsibilities is shouldered once again, and the trudge through the quicksand of life continues. Hopeless futility? Inevitable hardships? Only if that’s what we choose – and we do have a choice.
To turn our lives around takes only a moment of decision, a commitment, and the process of transformation has begun. Begin right now. We’ll let the child come out to play without worrying about images or impressions, and we’ll let the “esteem” part of self apply only to that highest aspect of our being. We’re going to stop being concerned about how others see us – I am who I am – and we’re not going to try to change to meet anyone else’s expectations.”
John Randolph Price, in “Living a Life of Joy”
