From fragments to puzzle pieces
It’s not anymore an exaggeration to say that we’re living multidimensional lives. For each dimension or fragment, we project a part of ourselves that may be different from other contexts. We can have our work self, our family self, our friend self, and even a lover self.
Each dimension would have different demands, and sometimes (or oftentimes), this leads to us living fragmented, inconsistent, and inauthentic lives.
Our challenge: how do we turn seemingly incompatible fragments into coherent puzzle pieces that paint a more holistic and integrated picture of our best self?
It takes a continuous cycle of attentiveness to our various experiences, intellectual and emotional understanding of our tendencies, reasonableness in our assessments, and responsibility in our decisions and actions.
Matthew 5:17-37. Let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No’ mean ‘No.’
