Who the Self Am I? (ask yourself)

Kind of the story for a lot of multi-raced people.

Anyway, let’s go through the list of a few personal growth and new age self words. Some call it fluffy. I call it just another series of hyphenated terms to prove we did our time in therapy.self-wordl

So here we go; some self words for ammunition as you explore who and what you are. Along the way, take a look at how you fit in, or why you don’t, or even, why you don’t want to.

  • Self-perception
  • Self-control
  • Self-respect
  • Self-esteem
  • Self-realization
  • Self-help
  • Self-pity
  • Self-worth

Now some others as long as we’re at it: Self-explanatory, self appointed, self-serving, self-absorbed. There’s a lot of all of these going around.

You get the point. Who the self you are is whatever you say you are. Like the actress, Lisa Bonet, said: “It’s okay to be a freak.”

So let’s say you are a key member of the SEC commission by day (I’m sure you wished you weren’t from August 2008 and on) and by night you’re a stem cell research scientist, and then on weekends you volunteer as a financial planner for elderly immigrants. See what I mean? Just a little freaky.

There are all kinds of mutts. And this is one good example. A career mutt. But we each can be whatever kind of “selves” we want to be.

Thought for the day: If you hold a good image of yourself, then it will be easier for others to see you in the same light. Remember that you are the only one who ought to rate and grade your life, so splash a huge gold on yourself. The more you like about yourself, the more others will like about you, too.
