We’re often told to find ourselves - like we are some lost wandering soul that if found, will make us feel complete and give us a sense of self. This concept has been so drilled into our heads, that we start feel like a shell, incomplete because it feels like part of us is missing and we have to go out to find it.
But what if we took a different approach - instead of searching for the missing piece, let’s learn to realize that you were never missing anything at all, that everything you ever needed was within yourself. We must learn that what’s more important than “finding yourself” is to understand yourself - understand your emotions, understand your actions, understand your perspective on life. Understanding yourself takes time, patience, discipline, and years of dissecting your actions and behaviors, but when you finally do you can finally let go of all the expectations and fulfill your own prophecy.
