✨"Finding yourself" is not really how it works.
✨You aren't a ten-dollar note in last winter's coat pocket.
✨You are also not lost.
✨You true self is right there
~ buried under cultural conditioning
~ other people's opinions
~ inaccurate conclusions you drew as a child that became your beliefs about who you are.
🌷"Finding yourself" is actually returning to yourself...
✨... an unlearning... an excavation... a re-remembering of who you are.
🌷"Waking up to who you are requires letting go of who you imagine yourself to be."
~ Alan Watts
