These are my musings and observations on my daily life, loves and the laughter that are all a part of my experience of living now in the shires of England.

Identity questioned

Who are you?

Think about it. The question is not what do you do but WHO you are?

Is your identity one that you are comfortable living with or are you currently establishing a new one?

The question is not about your social status, your occupation, your ethnicity or your religion. The question is about your character and your inner construction of yourself. The person you are when you wake up in the middle of the night, the person you are when you see pain in another being, the person you are when you are laughing, the person you are when you are crying.

This question, for me, is about the person I am when I am alone but also the person I am when I am with friends, when I am with family, when I am shopping, when I find a wallet full of money, when I see a child on their own. It is at times like these that I am reminded of who I really am.

When asking myself this question there was a tinge of something resembling guilt in some areas and I was curious as to why I felt this. So I delved further, I questioned myself in another way.

Do you feel guilty about any aspects of your identity and if so (or if not) then why?

What drives you to be who you are each day?

Does anything about yourself make you feel inadequate?

Do you know why?

Who or what are you comparing yourself to?

How can you change that?

Who are you?
