Our Truest Self

It is important to be true to ones self. However, first it is important to know thine self then you can be true to it. I suppose we can be true to an untrue version of ourselves, but is that what we want?

I think we are looking for the truest representation of our humanness, the part of us that is uniquely different from the rest. Unfortunately we find that we differentiate ourselves in all the same ways as the rest of the population making us very much un-unique.

We can be who we are with out abandoning those we choose to love. We simply have to be more understanding to those we don’t understand. More loving to those we don’t love, and more forgiving to those we don’t forgive. To see ourselves fail in these endeavors and truly reflect on said failures is a true expression of our uniqueness of our special disorder. Its also our super power, our yellow sun. Can we see that our difficulties are the truest reflection of our greatest strength?

If you couldn’t lift the weight it wouldn’t keep showing up.

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.
