Inward/Outward connection

My previous post spoke about defining oneself as what you are rather than what you are not.

This morning, I boot up the computer to read the blog-o-sphere and this little jewel posted on Inward/Outward popped up.

I could not have said it better myself.

The truth is, until we have taken the time to discover and affirm who we really are and what we really want, we are left with only negative identities and negative passion. We define ourselves by what we are against, and so have negative, not creative, passion. We need something to rebel against or we don't feel like we exist. We need someone to rebel against or we don't feel passionate about anything.... We are comfortable with rebelling, but fearful of creating.
