Hi Vimal - it's great that you're opening up and being vulnerable - a sure way to progression HeartPraying Emoji

I have to say I didn't respond with the family perspective because of just this latest post - to me, it's been a constant theme there in the background for some considerable time. I find myself often asking... "why are you still so concerned about family and what they might think?" It's just a general impression that's come across through the ether. But if you genuninely feel I'm mistaken, then it could be the case. Although usually when I 'see some smoke', there's a degree of fire behind it.

It's also good that you're honest about projecting the paternal figure onto me. I don't have a problem with it, that kind of thing happens all the time. The important thing is that you're owning it. And I think it's really positive to feel both attraction and a degree of 'repulsion'. I'm happy that we're probably reflecting both sides of the same coin - an invitation to stay connected, yet draw clear boundaries about what exactly is your truth.

I say this to you and to everyone, Openhand 'intentionally' (because it tends to naturally happen) acts as a mirror to bring things into awareness. It is NOT saying 'this' or 'that' is the truth. What is offered is more a framework for inquiry - a perspective in which to explore.

Wishing you well
