Be careful who you pretend to be or you might forget who you are.
I think I’ve spent so much time trying to be who I thought people wanted me to be. It’s not that they even made me or even asked me to be that way. But subconsciously you just slip into this role you think you have to fill.
Yesterday someone asked me a question that truly scared me. He said, “Who are you when you are truly yourself?”. It wasn’t the question itself that messed with me, it was the fact that I didn’t know the answer to this essential question.
I mean who can’t answer such a simple question. What it made me realize is that for so long I’ve been putting on this act and eventually it covered up my reality.
The quote above is completely true. It’s proven in my own life. I think I’ve been gone so long that I forgot who I am. If I know one thing though, is that I have got to find the true me.
Not the old me, not the fake versions of me, but the real me. I don’t think anyone has ever seen her yet. I bet she’s one pretty kick-ass girl.
