I am not the person you see before you.
I am not the person you hear.
I am not the person you hold in your arms.
I am not the person you share your quiet moments with.
I am not the person you have memories about.
I am not the person you create memories with.
I am not the person I think I was or am.
I am much more!
I am multi-faceted – too many to count.
I am a paradox.
I am a contradiction.
I am whole, but yet separate.
I am split personalities, but integrated
I am loving and hateful.
I am warm and yet distant or aloof.
I am an extrovert, but very private and shy.
I am fun loving jokester and yet wary of offense or offending.
I am decisive and yet cannot make a decision on occasion.
I am strong in my convictions and willing to hear new thoughts.
I am stubborn, but willing to change to accomodate others.
I have “hot flashes” of old memories. These memories are as real as if they just happened. I feel happy, embarrassed, or angry all over again.
I forgive myself of my transgressions and strive not to have to learn lessons twice.
I am confident of myself, but I doubt my abilities.
I am sensitive of others, but I am also unfeeling.
I cry real tears, but stuff the emotions.
I am brave, but a coward.
The list goes on and on. I am not different fromany other person, even you the reader of these scribblings.
Each human is capable of thought and action is similar.
I like who I am! This was not always true. There were times that were only one set of footprints in the sand and they weren’t mine.
I hope you like who you are. You are as deserving as I am.
