Ep 27: Are you betraying yourself to meet the needs of others?

Soren Kierkegaard said, “The most common form of despair is not being who you are." Pam Meyer, President of Sanctuary Women in Ministry shared some thoughts on how we can be true to ourselves while still considering the feelings of others at the same time. This "outward mindset" does not mean we have to betray ourselves in the process, it simply means doing our best to act out of love and realizing each one of us is human.
