Who am I?

Who am I?  Am I just who I think I am, or is there more to my identity than that?  Am I the sum total of all my experiences?  Or are my thoughts, dreams, and wishes a part of who I am?

Am I simply the daughter of my parents?  The sister of my siblings? A student of my teachers?

Am I the girl who was abused by my Mother, my preacher, my rapist?

Am I the woman who gave birth to my children?

Am I the counselor who tried to reach through your disease to give you a hand towards sobriety?

Am I the woman who has worked for equality for everyone in the face of violence and hatred?

I am all of these and more. It is the sum total of every experience, every thought and desire, every pain and frustration that made me…ME.

  3. You are all that and much more. You are also all the unrealized “you” that other people love.
