What is our Human Design?
There is a lot of misinformation and confusion about who we are and how we are supposed to feel, think and act. Every day we are told to be something: good, grateful, happy, successful, clean, funny, serious, dedicated, sexy, good-looking, peaceful, competitive, a good parent, faithful spouse, loyal friend, fair sibling, obedient child, good student and/or hard-working employee, etc.
If I were to ask you who you are, you would most likely answer the question with: I am a mom, dad, daughter, son, teacher, CEO, runner, blogger, etc. You would most likely answer who you are by something you think you are doing well or by who you are relationally to other people. While we may try to describe “who we are” by what we do and what roles we have in some relationships or circumstances, that is not who we really are at our most basic level.
The true human design is who we are all the time. It’s the design that exists from the time we are born until the time we die. Human design never changes. It’s not something we should ever hide. The human design is mysteriously complex, but it is not complicated to understand. It is simple but not simplistic. It is true and it is knowing our true design that will set us free from trying to be someone we can’t, free from unrealistic expectations and free to experience and enjoy ourselves, others and our lives.
