Who are you?

Are you really you?

Sounds crazy right?

But let me ask, did you choose the life you live or was it chosen for you?

You grow up in poor, limited, tough circumstances; chances are you’ll think in a poor, limited way.

Am I wrong?

Okay; when you were a kid, before you were corrupted by the world around you, what was your world like? Was it grimy? Was it paranoid? Was it filled with drugs and alcohol in attempt to escape the harshness of your reality?

I doubt that it was, yet the environment around you was a dark, drug-infested “dog-eat-dog” world.

How were you able to live then?

You thought differently that’s how. You hadn’t been around long enough to be corrupted by the despondency that surrounded you. As a result, that lack of hopelessness allowed the light of your true self to shine. You dreamed seemingly impossible dreams, made plans that extended far beyond the despair of the reality that threatened to choke away your hope like a weed does a young flower. You were you. Although it was an undeveloped, inexperienced version of you, it was purely you. That time in your life represents the potential that lies in waiting in all of us, before we learned to be what others expect of us.

We actually lose our sense of self as we move through the world. How then can we ever know who we are if we’ve lost contact with our true selves? All we are, if we aren’t in contact with our true selves, is a complex combination of all other people’s likes, dislikes and opinions.

We must dig deep into our mind and find out why we choose certain lifestyles. Ask ourselves whether or not the patterns of behavior we follow, whatever they are, fit in with our individual idea of what our life should be, of what we enjoy, and the types of people we like to have around us. Once we can answer these questions, they provide insight into who we are and allow us to answer the question in truth: “Who are you?”
