“To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.”
― E.E. Cummings
I decided I needed to know my “self” recently when I was having trouble articulating what it was I wanted to improve about myself and why it was important.
I think the challenge requires that you first think about who your “self” is. Listening to music is great for this. But if you do choose to think about who you are at the core, decisions become easier and you can trust yourself more when things change.
The next step, of course, is making sure that our self-perceptions are actuality (that we live them) rather than talk. There were some things I believed about myself and said but I was living something different. That is what I had to come to realize and then decide which reality I wanted. I wanted the new reality and decided to take further steps to make it real in my private, public, and professional lives.
