Steve and James sit down with Jennifer Finlayson-Fife (JFF) and talk about what it means to be truly human; fully alive. Where does it all start? That dreaded word Honesty. Honesty is the foundation of being fully human and truly alive.But why do we shy away from being fully human if that is what all of us want? Don’t we want to be seen for who we are? Do we want to be a part of the larger story? Do we want to become the person that is perfect?Being perfect is not being human. JFF said, “I don’t blame us for wanting a world free of suffering. The path is not perfectionism. This will stunt our ability to become ‘Fully Human’. This (perfectionism) is in complete opposition to the definition of being human.”Being human hurts. We see that from the example of the most human person ever to live. Jesus Christ. He was honest about everything in his life and yet people hated him for that. This is why most people decide to live in the smaller story. They don’t really want to be seen. Because it hurts too much. JFF says otherwise.“There is nothing that makes a spouse safer than honesty. They may not trust you. But, the moment that you come clean and are completely honest, it is the most safe place in your marriage.”When we let go of who we want people to think we are… Perfect. We let go of the counterfeit self. We let go of the shame and guilt of not being able to live up to our (and other’s) expectations. We become fully human, seen, heard and loved. So, back to the question of should you be here? Does your life make a difference? Do you want to be fully seen and heard?
