When your real self shines through, I think it's always because a part of you that was in the way has taken a back seat.
Just my take, words don't always do it justice.
I like this, this sounds and feels right. Yes I think this could be it. The resistance has gone, the issues causing the resistance have dissolved.
Gonna think on this.
