    Have a Question That Is Hard to Answer

    Who am I? This is a question that for years I have never figured it out. When I was younger I was on anti-depressants that took years from my life that to this day I never got back (memories that is). Some called it a breakdown and I called it a blessing. I still...

    Who Do I See In the Mirror?

    When I look in the mirror I see a little girl who always wanted her Daddy's approval and acceptance. I see a teenager who was so overly responsible that her friends told her she was no fun. I see a young adult who struggled to decide what to do with her life (and never decided...

    Hardest Question To Answer

    I can't work out who I am. I've tried, but everything I think I am seems to be defined by other people and that doesn't seem like the right way to know myself. One part of me is a mum of two children who have autism. One part of me is the fiancée of a man with mental...

    Who am I? 1 Who am I You are not the body,

    you are not the senses, you are not the thoughts, you are not the unconscious state in which objects do not appear. 2 If I am none of these, then who am I After negating all the above as not this not that the awareness which alone remains is who you are 3 What is the nature...

    My first answer would probably be my name.

    But, my name does not describe who I am on the inside. I could then give the title of my profession. But that is what I do. I could then tell you I am a sister and a daughter. But those are my relationships. I ask again, who am I? I could describe myself as an extrovert and...

    who am I? who am I? Three words that should be as easy to answer as "where am I" or even "How am I". But, for me, it's not.... I take pictures of myself and look at myself in the mirror- I look at myself as I would a stranger and it fills me with disquiet...

    It's Pretty Basic Really

    A conscious ape, that unfortunately needs to make decisions generated from a modern brain in a stoneage skull. It all unfolds, rather poorly on the whole, from there. Be grateful, think of the worst place you can imagine – and then make a coffee.

    Who I Am

    There's never been a real me, I don't recognize the person I was and I likely won't recognize who I am now. That's the price we pay to grow. Ask someone who they are, they'll tell you some absurd line like "I am who I am" which translates directly to "nothing" or they'll spot...
