    Freedom Is Everything

    Who am I? I want to be more, than I am now. I want to be free. My mind is at that state but the rest of me is not. I know things that I want to do and long for but can't. I feel trapped and bounded. I cant leave this simple life so easily, people depend on me to much to live...

    I've Never Been Myself, Its Always Been About Being Someone Else

    Okay well here goes, I've never posted anything online like this before... I'm a 23 year old guy and I feel like I don't know who I am. When I was younger in elementary school I always wanted to be heard and pretty much just be heard, maybe it was because I was the younger son in...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.
