The Truth About Me
Who am I?
Knowing the answer to this question is central to everything. Central to understanding how I deal with others. Central to how I perceive the world. Central to my relationship with those I love.
Who am I?
To be brutally honest, I am a mass of contradictions.
I am strong for my family but incredibly vulnerable at my core. I hurt easily and hard.
I care too much about how others perceive me and don’t always say what I mean.
I will cede on the small things but will fight hard to win the big ones.
I play it safe although I yearn to throw caution to the wind, just once, and see what happens.
I am constant and loyal and true.
I keep myself busy, always so very busy, because I don’t want to be alone with my thoughts.
I worry about everything yet maintain an optimistic certainty that all will be well.
I still don’t know what I want to do with my life.
I am eager to please but have been known to be passive-aggressive on occasion.
I love my kids with all my heart but I need space from them too.
I believe in myself and in my family.
I will never give up on the things I believe in.
I am an advocate even though I hate confrontation.
I am stronger than even I realize.
I always put myself last as I feel selfish for doing otherwise, yet I resent my place.
I am flawed and complex.
I am me.
