"We know ourselves only in relationship with God and others."

This quote from Leanne Payne, in her book, "The Healing Presence," struck me this morning. Who am I? It is in the context of relationship - with other human beings, and in relationship with our Creator, that we develop a deep, and abiding sense of "this is me, this is who I am." 

To the extent that those relationships are healthy, we develop a healthy sense of self where we are secure, safe, strong, with a sense of well being at the deepest part of who we are. To the extents that those relationships are unhealthy, we develop a false self that we use to explain and cover over that lack of healthy connection.

Integrity has a lot to do with being comfortable inside our own skin so that we do not have to project a false self, but rather we can simply be who we are. Sometimes this is called self acceptance.
