Which is why we need to remember our catechism (or at least the one I learned at my Convent school) http://www.proecclesia.com/penny%20catechism/
"Who made you?" God made me
"Why did he make you?" God made me to know him, love him and serve him in this world, and to be happy with him forever in the next
Nothing there about "being true to yourself" - it's ALL about being true to what God made you, as a unique and holy and loved individual.
Somewhere, I have got the tattered red paper catechism that we were all given, whether we were Catholic or not (I'm not) by the nuns, and which we studied in RE lessons. This has inspired me to go and look for it (but I will probably have forgotten about this inspiration before I get back upstairs - such is the frailty of human nature.)
