We often put up guards due to hurt and past experiences. These experiences have damaged us in a way that has affected us. A natural thing for us as humans is to protect ourselves. Sometimes this protection can interfere with our growth. In life we are required to grow and experience life on different levels. Guarding ourselves can stagnate our growth therefore we should strive to be transparent. To be transparent we allow the world to enjoy the greatness in us, to be seen as we are which is greater than what we portray ourselves to be. Transparency is being undisguised and allowing light to shine through so that all can be seen. Breaking down walls of hurt and pain to allow others to see how beautiful we truly are.
