There’s a stream of demands on you to perform different roles. Like different characters in a theater play.
When you reflect on it all, you ask the questions, “Who am I?” and “What should I be doing with my life?”
The demands on you appear to conflict. It’s tough being the captain, crew and passengers on your ship. People offer you unsolicited advice every time you display any vulnerability. You doubt yourself. You feel like an impostor.
But what you’re witnessing is the collective expectations of those around you to become nobody other than who you are.
The storm of voices is a unified force. It’s an unambiguously honest voice telling you who you are.
The thousand splintered shards of a mirror cannot agree on anything other than their original reflection.
