How can you describe all aspects and facets of a person’s personality into just a few short paragraphs? Conceding that it’s impossible to accomplish, how do you choose which part of your personality to share and which one to omit?
Personally, I consider myself somewhat of an oddity. I think this is mostly due to feelings that I’ve had since my earliest memories that I didn’t belong, meaning from the family I grew up in, to the world in general. I have always been hypersensitive and just didn’t seem to be able to fit in. In my youth, being unique or different was uncomfortable to me and I tried very hard to live by the expectations of society.
I turned my back on my deepest values and the abilities that my sensitivities allowed me to have and tried to act “normal.” But I was miserable. I wasn’t in touch with my true self and my true inner feelings. How could I be? I trying to be someone else. I was trying to live what someone else had set down as what I should want and how I should be living my life. It’s taken a long time, but now I’m comfortable being me, even if that means not buying into what society promotes as the perfect life that we should be striving for.
This website is a way for me to express what I consider to be important, such as personal and spiritual evolution. Please do share your perspectives too, I would love to hear them.
