Do you want to know me ?

Do you want to know me ?

I am unique. I am special. I am me.If you think I am funny,that’s your problem.

“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it — I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself.

I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.

Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know — but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me.

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me.

I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me.

I am me, and I am Okay.”

    I’m sure we all have faults we would like to correct, but these faults keep us human!

    Well it is a pleasure knowing the real you…And a little bit of what you didn’t know about you… glad i could know that too and introduce it to you. .
    Wonderful words …… a self seeking and a true self exploration and the question we definitely ask ourselves ” Who am I”?

    Thank you Ana
    The post is full of meaning and stressess one important component residing in all of us, that is of the individuality and individual feelings.But unfortunately we ignore this important aspect and try to influence or dominate,bully,harrass others .
    Appreciate stopping by.
