    "Who are you?" is a question I dread being

    asked. How do I sum up my life and everything I stand for in the matter of seconds? In a few words? This question triggered kind of a phase, or an enlightenment, or whatever you want to call it. It made me feel like I needed to know more about myself. I needed to be able to...

    Questioning...always Questioning

    I always seem to get confused and need to think long and hard about just what it is I enjoy. What type of activities am I really into? What do I want to do with my life? How would I describe my personality? What makes me me? How am I different from anyone else? What made him love...

    Um, What Was The Question Again?

    Who am I? Why do I do what I do? What made you not love me? Will I ever be all that dream? Am I adopted? All these things in a childlike tone, once asked, now answered in an adult voice.. bit by bit, day by day the new discovery is made..

    I Want To Know

    I don't know what I truly like. I don't know what i want to be. I don't know whether I'm good or bad. And I want to know. I feel like I'm having a personality crisis. Sometimes I get panic attacks when I think about who I am, because I don't know. And I want to. I don't even know...

    Planting trees is not

    I was a High school dropout way back when

    and instead of the standard marriage, job, kids thing that dropouts do, I hit the road. For the next ten years, I didn't stop anywhere for more than four months and that was only twice. Thirty days was about all I could take of any one place. In the first seven years of that...

    There Is No Straight Forward Answer

    yes, who you are is always changing. yes, self-discovery is as much about finding yourself as creating yourself. yes, in the process of struggling with who you are you make decisions that determine who you become, yes you can ask what is real in me and what it not, but you can...
