    “Freud noted that things about ourselves that we refuse to acknowledge are give increased power and influence by our failure to accept them. It is that which we avoid, he asserted, that will most tyrannize us. In this he was right. Self-acceptance does not increase the power of things that ultimately need to be eliminated. Rather, it is weakens them. It does so because it robs them of the power they develop when they operate out of awareness and outside the embrace of self-acceptance.”

    This was a passage out of this week’s reading. Do you agree that you cannot know the truth of your self without first accepting the things about yourself that you wish were not true? What parts of your self do you have the most trouble acknowledging, naming, and embracing?
