Finding the authentic you

People talk about finding oneself like it is the easiest thing in the world.  Like you will go out to get the groceries and you will meet yourself on the street.  That is a  promising thought but unfortunately, it is not as easy as it seems.

People everywhere will always try to tell you who you are and it’s quite easy and very much human for people to lose themselves in the million voices of people telling them who they are.

Finding yourself can be a bloody process, full of thorns and bruises and losing yourself more times that you can count.  Whether we want to accept it or not, we are a collection of different people, the ones we love, the ones we admire, the ones we learn from etc but that doesn’t mean that we stop being our unique selves.

Blindly following the crowd is destructive to our authentic self but we have to remember there is no rush in finding your authentic self. Sometimes, people spend a lifetime trying to find themselves and they do that at the most important part of their lives.
