What is the difference?
What choice do we have? We have many.
To define oneself is to be true.
To defend oneself is trying to find the truth in a convenient lie.
What is a lie? Is it defending your truth because you cannot speak it?
What is truth? Your own voice speaking out, without interference?
What do we know? We know only what we believe to be true.
Define yourself, in words.
Defend yourself, in words.
What do your thoughts tell you?
I once heard a person say that evil can create evil but good men defend the bad in them to make is become good. Define this. You cannot.
Stand up. Stand up for yourself in truth by defining your true nature, without pause. Make it your truth because it is yours and not another to defend theirs.
