Who is ‘The Real You’?
We often believe that we must remain true to ourselves throughout life. But there is a crucial difference between being true, and being intractable. Sometimes we avoid certain activities or thoughts because we think, ‘nah, this isn’t me’. We have painted a personal identity for others, and also for ourselves. Who are we, without something to believe in?
Yet the current version of us – in this time, in this place, and in this circumstance – is bound to need an upgrade. The world is ever changing, especially in this day and age. We have yet to reach the full potential of who we can become. In that sense, if we don’t experiment and work towards an improved build, then are we ‘truly ourselves’, or a mere fragment of it?
I suppose that’s what this quote means to me for now. You are ‘truly you’ in this very moment, because it is where all potentials have crystallised. Of all the things that could have been, it has reached this very specific point, and that is pretty amazing! But from here on, the possibilities open up once again, and you have choices to make. If not of a physical capacity, then a mental one. So I urge you and me to pause and see how far we’ve come, ask of life what it demands from us, and then strive for it.
