Some people spend days, years even a lifetime “searching for themselves”. I say STOP. You are just wasting your time. There has never been a greater lie. You are who you are. It is inside you. Who you have always been. There is no question to have. It is who you were since the very first day you were born, who you were when you were a kid, as a teenage, as a adult… It doesn’t change. Sure we grow up, we mature, we learn, we correct some things, but ultimately, it is still you. Still the same person who wakes up every morning, with those beliefs, those values, those goals, those passions.
It is always you. You haven’t changed, you are still you. So stop finding excuses for your lame self and start becoming your better self. Your real self. You might need a big slap in the face that might be all you need my friend. Wake up and start living a life from intention. Look inside of you for what makes you happy, what activities, sports, skills, passion, and start investing in that. Your time and your energy. More often then not it is what has been following you throughout your childhood. Think about the people you love and invest in them as well. More often then not these are your family.
The fact both of these things have always been there also proves YOU have always been there. You are never lost. So quit wasting your time overthinking and start doing. Live by intention instead of being passive.
But you want to know the real secret? Why do some people always know who they are? Because they believe in GOD.
