When we think of who we are, in our minds, we have created a persona of how we think of ourselves, and how we hope others think of us. Others have also created a persona of who they think we are, and their image rarely matches ours.
Many of us, especially those seeking self development and realisation are subject to constant change. Therefore, our persona (whether drawn by ourselves or others) also constantly changes. This means that we would find ourselves often at a crossroad: we can either continue to hold on to the old image we have of ourselves and continue to try to entertain the image others have of us or to hit the self destruct button.
I have been hitting that button for the last year on the idea of the self with a little "s". I have been demolishing this recklessly like a wrecking ball. It stopped mattering to me what my loved ones, society and even my mind had to say about who I have to be. Instead I hit the Self construct button. My eyes are focused on the Self with a capital S, my soul and my truth.
Approval from others, change in relationships and even the internal battle is no longer an obstacle that holds me back from exploring the possibility of what would unveil when I let it all go.
