“Is devotion to others a cover for the hungers and needs of self, of which one is ashamed? I was always ashamed to take. So I gave. It was not a virtue. It was a disguise.”
Disguises are the costumes we wear for the life-play we compose. Fortunately, we can take them off.

May you be blessed to know that who you truly are blesses the world.
