It's About Time

Discovering me is exactly where I am in life right now. I was a person with lots of friends and family, a  career, a great relationship and all the things that pertain to a "complete" life.  But then discovered that I wasn't really happy.  I spent most of my time catering to other ppl, engaging in THEIR interests and activities and forgetting my own.  Unfortunately, none of the ppl in my circle could accept that I wanted to do things for myself and "grow' in a different direction. But as the old adage goes "to thine own self be true". So I began distancing myself from the former (famiy, friends, etc.) and I found myself in a very lonely place.  It's amazing how ppl have their preconceived notions of who you are and who you are suppose to be; and unfortunately they didn't provide room or support for me to become the person I was truly meant to be.   Now that I am in a stage of transition, I am finally discovering things about myself and my interests that I never knew before, and it's a great feeling. When this phase is over, I know I will land on my feet and be a much better person than I could have ever been in the past! No more "ppl pleasing" - I am discovering me!
