Who we are and who we want to be are two different things.
The latter encompasses dreams we have but don’t quite know how to get there, values we think we can compromise on if only to maintain what we want, ideals we want to live up to because people we love expect them and the pressure to be the best person we can be in spite our internal struggles with our own brand of demons.
People change (their minds, their appearance, their needs and wants), they evolve, perspectives shift….I get that its a part of growing up. I just wish time stopped for a little bit so who we are can catch up with who we want to be…. Or at least long enough until we can have some clarity without our own internal monologue confusing us.
