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, 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 the 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 🙁
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 Father 🙂
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-
