Who are you?
We can all answer this simple question by filling in the blank with a name. But does your name define you? I don’t think so. Grace Nunn is my name, but that’s not who I am.
We all have an identity. In fact, some people steal identities. Here’s my question: Are they truly becoming that person by taking their name? I don’t think so.
If someone stole your identity, you would still be you. There is only one you. We are all different, all beautiful in our own way. We all have different passions, likes and dislikes. We all look different.
If someone stole your identity are they stealing you?
You are you! No one can take that away from you. You are who you are.
The problem in our society is that people aren’t satisfied with their identities. They try to be like someone else. By doing this you are robbing yourself of your own identity. There is only one you. Embrace this by being yourself. Find out how you want to make a difference. Choose the career that you love. Stop caring about what other people think and just be you!
If you stop being yourself and struggle to grab onto your identity, you are not only robbing yourself of happiness, you are robbing the world of getting the chance to see you for who you really are.
Be bold. Be beautiful. Be you. By doing these things you will strengthen your identity. Don’t ever try to be someone else. You are needed.
