To join in the unfolding, true story is to participate in a new conversation. Participation is an equalizer. A commitment to a new conversation is an individual choice and is not tethered to title or position. We each share an equal part and responsibility.
As I trust myself to keep the commitments made to self, I will give trust more freely while earning trust as I keep the commitments made to others. These kept commitments activate the core energy required for safety and trust in the new conversation. To take personal accountability in a new conversation, you must enter the dialogue with a new confidence. This is a confidence found in authenticity; one’s true story.
When trust is weak, our individual and collective stories are incomplete. When trust is weak, there is distraction, fear, and silent conflict as individuals behave in a low energy field hidden away in a safe zone. When trust is weak, we will do only what seems necessary to keep a perceived safe standing. The greatest casualty in this incomplete story is the individual’s confidence. In the heavy cloud of low confidence, the story stalls as there is failure in the function of creativity on the part of the listeners; the characters in the story.
A new chapter in the story is being written. The situation is now one of deciding what role we will each choose to confidently play.
