Who are you?

There is one event during the month of October that young children look forward to – Halloween! On Halloween, children wear masks to disguise their faces. But masks are worn every day by everyone. We hide our emotions, our thoughts, our lives from others. There’s a saying “See something, say something”. The problem is, that many of us don’t. We are more afraid of speaking up or standing up for others. First responders run toward trouble while everyone else runs away. How many of us hide our true selves?

In another time, “G” wrote the following post. Let me know what you think.

JUST WHO ARE YOU?

Have you ever stopped and taken stock of who you are? I mean REALLY who you are. Just who ARE you?

Are you what other people say / think you are? Are you what you THINK you are? Are you what the “social measurements” say you are? Are you what you’ve been, or what you’re becoming? Just who ARE you?

And when you look in the mirror who do you see? Do you see you, or someone else? Just who are you?

And by the way, are you who YOU are, or what someone else WANTS you to be. Just who ARE you?

Are you what you started out to be, or are you still looking for what you WANT to be? Just who ARE you?

And say, if you know who you are today, are you certain it’s who you want to be TOMORROW? How difficult is it to be who you are, and how difficult is it to change? Just who ARE you?

Then is who you are what you WANT to be? Just who ARE you?

And while we’re at it, are you a human being or a human BECOMING? Just who ARE you?

Have you ever helped someone become what they wanted to be? Or have you spoiled someone’s dream of what they wanted to be? Just who ARE you?

Excuse me now, while you ponder “Just who ARE you?” I’ve got to go figure out —–Just who I am!

Who are you?

Dear Fellow Journalers,

The month of May issues in our self-development journal. Now much has been written, centralized, podcasted (is there such a word?) about the journey of self by much more learned people than I so I thought I would touch on some simple ways for us to write about our journeys. To start us off, G asks the simple question:

JUST WHO ARE YOU

Have you ever stopped and taken stock of who you are? I mean REALLY who you are. Just who ARE you?

Are you what other people say / think you are? Are you what you THINK you are? Are you what the “social measurements” say you are? Are you what you’ve been, or what you’re becoming? Just who ARE you?

And when you look in the mirror who do you see? Do you see you, or someone else? Just who are you?

Excuse me now, while you ponder “Just who ARE you?” I’ve got to go figure out —–Just who I am!
