Re: Do you know who you are?
I'm a ***** I'm a lover
I'm a child I'm a mother, I'm a sinner I'm a saint, I do NOT feel ashamed, I'm your hell I'm your dream, I'm nothing in between.
Kinda sums it up. I think "Knowing who you are" is a bit over rated, I think accepting who you are is much more important. If you go on a trip of "Who am I" you're going to be spinning, rather sit back and learn who you are when you find yourself in a given situation. I starting to find my center, where I feel solid, not saying I don't have fear. I do.
I'm starting to look at myself as the world sees me, the POSITIVE, not so much the negative (it's a starting point) I'm always told Im well liked, this that, so, I'm going to accept it, actually I was in a position where I had to call in my "Personality" I was glad it was there.
I accept when I am wrong, I KNOW when I am wrong, I admit to when I am wrong, I try to stand on my personal integrity, I may not always do the right thing, but if questioned, I'm not going to lie, twist and turn to make me come out looking great. When I am wrong, I will apologize, it may take me a while to see this, but I will apologize.
Most recently, I found I had more, tactics in me than I thought, I acted on it, I knew fully well what the consequences would be, what the man would attempt to do, but, I was one step ahead, and I loved it, I'm still loving it, and, I'm not done, again, I'm not saying I'm not scared, I'm scared to death BUT. I just have to be, a bit more, discrete, so I plot too.
I'm almost OK with who I am, accepting it fully, I'm NOT always the nice person I was told I had to be "Be nice", growing up, why...... when I'm not nice there's a reason.
When I'm your friend, I am your friend there's not much I wouldn't do. Usually the people I know, if they do something wrong, it's for the right reasons, my friends have integrity, and I would back them with most anything, I may say Hey, I think you're screwing up, but I understand, just be prepared. I guess I'm saying I'm loyal. I don't like being jerked around, I don't like being toyed with, I don't ask for anything I'm not willing to give. So, I don't know who I am, but I accept who I am, and it's OK;_)
