Ive read this one a couple of times. This is something I really struggle with for many reasons. I have found it helpful to look at who  I am not, rather than who I am.. just a thought.

I really am enjoying your posts here...~Peace, OTA

I think if we don't ask that question, or understand what it was we learned from the experience, then we are going to repeat it.

Pat B--
thanks for your wonderful comment--it's great that you did finally learn that others cannot define who you are, no matter how much they might try!

A-and-B--
LOL. Or rather, you hesitate to commit to who you are.

"What did I learn from this experience?" is a powerful question to ask oneself.  It's those kind of questions that can really force us to examine our motives, underlying beliefs, and our true character.  I enjoy your way of thinking....

The most important thing I learned in college is who I am.
When I was a child mama said, you're this way. When I was a wife my husband said you're that way. My supervisor at work said this is who you are. So when I went to college I found out they were all wrong. I was only partly, in a small way, who they had decided I was. And since I've learned to learn, sometimes even now I surprise myself. Thanks for your thoughtful post -- well written and insightful!

Sometimes, I don't even know myself because I hesitate to make the decision.

Write for yourself and all will be well.

Julia - Well, I hope you keep it. You never know who is reading it. You
may be really helping someone silently.  Plus, right now I find many people are really busy with summer.  Well north of the equator anyway, if you know what I mean.

I think we learn best from ourselves if we are honest and face who we
really are.  Self-delusion stops this process dead.  you know the kind of person who has failed relationships behind them and always blames the other party.

thanks Mary,
I'm glad to hear you like this blog. I often think of closing it down, because it doesn't seem to get much action compared to my other one. But then I think, well, the right people will read it and if that is just one or two, so be it.

Julia - I agree that we know ourselves better than anyone, most of the
time but sometimes it's so darn difficult to weave through the thorns and such.  I'm reading a book on spirituality right now and I FINALLY got something.  I think I"ll blog on it, because I wonder if others had the same trouble I did.  I'm really enjoying these posts of yours lately, BTW.

Julia, Some people find out early in life who they are, and there's always
those whom seek the answer. Me, I'm OK. I know who I am. Hug and a flower for ya Julia

One of the earliest and most important things I wondered in life was
who am I?  It remains the most important of questions!
