My Nightly Journal 27

“To be or not to be, that is the question”
Oh, who am I directing the question to?
Hmm, why yes, you!
Are you yourself all of the time?
I feel that I am more myself now than I have ever been in my life.
Once when I was younger, I was asked if I knew myself, and
I honestly answered that I did not.
Over the past few years I have come to realize that I knew myself
full well back then, at the time I lacked confidence, I thought “be coy”,
and have them tell me who I was..
I also felt I needed to spend the next few years discovering who I was..
To some it may seem that I should feel annoyed at having wasted such time confirming something that I had already known, yet I wish to share this with you “I disagree..”
I am very grateful for the time I had taken to overcome the doubts that gnawed at me in the shadows,
to truly be able to say that “Yes I know myself
100% of the way, and I Love myself too, so be respectful to me”
