Who are you?
How well do you know yourself?
Do you have a clear answer if someone throws these questions at you all of a sudden?
If the answer is ‘Yes’, you need not read further!
But if the answer is ‘No’, then this post would be worthwhile...
“The better you know yourself, the better your relationship with the rest of the world.”
How many of you actually took the time to explore the real you?
Only if we have an opinion about ourselves will we be able to communicate the same to another person. Unfortunately,in today’s world,we try harder to unravel others instead of spending time on ourselves.And the net result is that we might end up knowing more than what we ought to know in the first place about that person while understanding ourselves too little .Isn’t it embarassing to realize eventually that someone has created an opinion about you and in effect knows you better than yourself?
Life is a journey-one where you constantly keep learning and unlearning.So it is quite natural that you change or adapt yourself accordingly.
On looking back,I feel that I have changed a lot over the years.I wonder if my five-year younger self would recognize me if not for the physical appearance(which has also undergone significant changes!).And it might be the case with most of you too. What matters is how much you have evolved and how much you are happy with your current personality.If you feel that you have changed for good,it is a great achievement.On the other hand,if you feel that you have lost the real ‘you’,then its time to sit down and rewind what went wrong.
Your definition of who you are is not dependent on what others think of you-be it your closest family member or your best friend! What you are or what you should be is not related to what you were in the past. In other words,your failures and your losses do not have a say in your present and future.The amount of time you invest in the memories of your failures dictates what lies ahead.
