"Finding yourself" is not really how it works ..."
I was reminded of this quote this morning.
“Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people’s opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are.”
I watched the movie “Rocketman” for the second time last night. It’s unbearably sad to see Elton John drawing all these heartbreakingly inaccurate conclusions about who he was.
Who were YOU before the world got its hands on you?
The little girl in the photo above is me before the world got its hands on me.
Slowly but surely, I’m unlearning all the things I’m not and, through a process of excavation, remembering who that little girl is.
