“To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.”
– Robert Louis Stevenson
Differentiating from negative influences and identities from our past is an important aspect of self-development. We should ask ourselves: Whose life am I really living? Am I basing my life on my own personal beliefs, values and desires?
By undertaking the project of differentiation, we are able to more fully become the unique individuals that we have the potential to be.
