Who are "YOU"?
This may seem like a silly question. However, if you dare to peer past
your façade, you may find someone new waiting to emerge.
Some of us have only met our "Representatives"; you know the entity that we present to the open world. Deep down we know that it's just a shell, but we have grown attached, so we let them stay.
The real you requires work and a responsibility that you'd rather not associate with. Sometimes it's easier to just exist in the shallowness of life.
Unfortunately, there's a reality check. Just as a chick's life is on the other side of its fragile shell, our beginnings are waiting to soar from within. The tenant that you're secretly housing could be your key to everything that you ever wanted.
Don't fear the work that needs to be done in order to free them... in order to free "You".
Whatever that may look like to others is inconsequential.
Seek out therapy if that's what is needed. Find a mentor or that new circle of friends that will pour into your soul.
Finding "You" means finding the courage to realize that you can't do it alone.
