LIFE STORY

Who am I? A Soul who never stops evolving

May 27, 2016

Who am I?

We are not made in one day. It took years to shape up our current mindsets, values, habits and preferences.

In this journey we meet so many people who grind us, polish us and reshape us to the one we are now. Change is one constant thing in this journey of continuous transformation.

But if we approach change reluctantly, refusing to acknowledge it as life’s basic rhythm,ย  and instead foolishly devote our energies to trying to prevent change, we’ll miss the opportunity to influence the shape of things to come.

The first one who influence us are our Parents. We are their reflection. They can see their good or bad traits in us. They mould us to be perfect but Perfection is non-real; it does not exist at least for us, Humans.

Are we prepared to answer this simple but intriguing question?

My mind’s answer to Who am I:

  • I am more attached to my Mother
  • I love following fit regime
  • I love my Nation
  • I lack in patience..It land me into problems
  • I have love and respect for all religions
  • I believe in giving.. Practicing it
  • I believe in grabbing the opportunity
  • Change begins at you and I am changing daily
  • I am a Social bee and love to meet people and go out
  • I love my Hobbies and don’t want them to die
  • I hate Gender Biasing
  • I am alert when in public

Lot more…but I am cutting it short here.

My Father was far lived till I entered my teens. This might be theย  reason I am so possessive for my Mother- up to the extent that I feel insecure when I think about my Brother’s marriage and someone else taking place in her heart- I know its bad ๐Ÿ™

It was my Mother’s decision not to move abroad and live in our own Country. She always woke us up early on National Days- Indian Republic day and Independence Day to watch the LIVE Flag hoisting program and made us stand in honor during National Anthem. My love for Nation has been reasoned out.

Now, whats next- Opportunity grabber, Alertness and Patience lacking. The credit goes to my Fatherย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Introspecting myself: I think the rest of them were carried from Mother. She always inspire me not to let the Hobbies die. She made few but good friends which encourages me. She never ever stopped us from following other Religion rituals or going to their pilgrimages but rather advised us to respect all religions as- All have some good things to teach and no religion is perfect.

Thanks to friends who motivated me, guided me and to stood up like a stone whenever I was diverting away from the path. Thanks to my Brother who loved me and respected me despite my ills.

We inherit the things from your immediate environment as a part of growing up. We are never actually these, for we are constantly becoming something else.

Keep asking this question to you every year and you will get different answers as we evolve each day-

“Who am I?” I am a Soul which never stops evolving.

  • Lovely and matured writing! It’s true when I think of it. I look back and I wonder in amazement that I was so different back then, but back then it all seemed normal. Enjoyed reading your article @upasana

  • So true. We keep on changing and evolving each day. And, our personality grows, moulds with us. I loved your answers, they are quite similar to mine if I happened to face that eternal “Who am I” question in this way…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I can feel I am not the same person who I was 4 years back. I think I need to do this task again. I am noting down all the answers in 1 place. Thanks for commenting Mani- It means a lot.

  • You are right, we are constantly evolving and changing from who we are into someone similar but a bit different.

  • Thanks for an awesome sentence. I really like the idea that we’re all souls who never stop evolving, and how your mother taught you to have respect for each and every one. She sounds like a wonderful influence, and very worthwhile listening to.

    • Hey Thanks Lizzi. Yes, I wish I could learn 50% of what all she has to teach.That day will be a victory.

  • Kristi – Finding Ninee

    So glad you hosted with me this week – thanks for a great sentence. I like how you answered the prompt and had to giggle about you worrying about your brother’s wife taking up space in your mom’s heart. That’s something I’d think! I also lack in patience and believe that all religions have things to teach us – such a good point.

    • He He… I am little over possessive about her. My MIL says …Patience comes with experiences…lets see ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I too enjoyed it Kristi.

  • Nicki Gilbert

    So enjoy your clear approach, and especially your last line: “We are never actually these, for we are constantly becoming something else.” Thank you for hosting FTSF this week!

    • Thanks Nicki, I too enjoyed co-hosting it with Kristi.BTW I Loved ur banner.

  • It’s interesting to analyze ourselves like this. Some things are the same for me but some are different. For example, I hate gender bias too, but I think you are more outgoing that I am. On the other hand, I am pretty patient. By the way, I think your mother gave you very good advice about religion.

    • Ya Bun..it is. I will do this every year now. Thanks for dropping by.

  • Deborah Lovel Bryner

    I’m glad your parents were an inspiration for you…mine are, in a way…but kind of in the opposite direction: from my parents, I learned to trust very few people…because they trust EVERYONE and often those same people hurt me in awful ways. I learned to look for a man who was nothing like my father…because my father’s temper is a truly awful thing. Sigh. I love my parents…but not as role models. Loved your post…

    • Thanks Deborah. Their experiences evolved you and its good not to trust a person in first meet. Its good to see you here.
