I.   Know yourself



Unfortunately it took a lot of time and pain to realise that I didn't know myself.
It seems to me that we (and especially me) get so caught up in the world around us that we don't get around to ourselves. And by this I don't only meen loving yourself. I do. I have so much respect for myself that I could never allow someone else to call me something derogatory, even if it was for a joke. I refuse being called  :censor: -ed up or pathetic. It took me long enough to realise that I am not. I don't think we could ever truly know who we are until you have had a hell of a reality check. I now spend every day getting to know myself. Because nothing in my life is as important as me. If I were to break down or pass on, there would be no more me. There would be nothing.
I can't believe how long it took me to realise this... It's quite sad. That say that you don't know what you've lost until it's gone. I never realised what I had lost. I never realised how little I knew about myself. In the last few weeks I noticed how much I missed painting. I loved art, but was forced to choose between my family and art. I chose family. But now that I am older and my own person I am going to make time for it again.
I also recently lost something so important to me... the cause was me. I understood the dynamics of my personality so little that I was the catalyst for an awful end.
Luckily I can fix it now... Unfortunately I realised this too late.

I know this might seem petty to you people, but I cannot stress the importance of knowing yourself...

Your life only has one component: YOU. If you lose you, you have lost everything...
I am the Moonlight of your Soul...
I see your soul,
It speaks to me...

Also took me years to figure out that the missing component I was looking for was actually knowing myself and not living up to other people's standards.

It took a complete breakdown for me to realize who I was, and guess what, I found out I was wiccan. (among other things of course!!!)

It takes a while before you find out everything, and just when you do, you change in some ways and have to start all over again.

I always thought I knew exactly who I was, where I was going and what I wanted. But it was more of a case of being who everyone else wanted me to be.  So I decided to do things my way and to hell with those that didn't like it, I was tired of trying to prove myself.  I lost a lot of friends because I followed my instincts and even though my friends are less these days, the few friends I do have are exactly who need to be in my life at the moment. Not only that, I have found that every phase of one's life is a new phase of self-discovery. I learned that for the first time when I fell pregnant and of course more recently, when I became a mommy... and I will continue to look forward to learning about myself, changing to adapt and the new phases that my life is yet still to enter.

I agree, I think finding oneself is an ongoing process and I relish every day that I can learn new things about myself. I'm really happy with who I am at the moment, but I'm also looking forward to finding out who I'm going to be in the future.

that is what most of our harsh experiences are about, delving into the root and the innermost essence of the self to gain knowledge, understanding and acceptance of the self. it is easy to think you know yourself, and to underestimate your powers of survival when going through hard times. and every hurdle we conquer, is one step closer to the next. like every learning process, this process is infinite, because the self is infinite.
