Not yet I don't think. I'm not in any rush either. Just wandering along hoping I find something that will keep me happy for a while.

I've been lost for 6 years.

What the hell are you people talking about. You don't have to find yourself, just be who you want to be.

Finding yourself is not easy. Nor will there be a predestined time you will find yourself.

But For me,I found myself. I made a bad decision in life. The situation that came out of it gave me time.I ignored what I wanted to do,and focused learning more about myself. Why I dislike,like,hate things.What makes me cry, what makes me happy,what my goal in life was.This could go on forever.But Basically I thought about how I handle these feelings,What makes me more comfortable.And What gets rid of regret in my life.

I made sure I did make one thing out of the selfish time I recieved.. A Resolve.My Strength,The way I go about life.One could go as far to say that in its own,it's a philosopy.I made sure I made one purely uninspired and original.No media involved, no outside influence.I made sure it was strong enough to take on this world, and I made sure that I am completely loyal to it. Never to let life change me, no matter how bad it gets.


The intial problem before this should've been handled in the fashion of quickly fixing it.But instead I let it give me time to find myself.Why?I think pinpointing it :It was basically now that I know who I am,I have the courage to do things I didn't want to because of culture,depressing influence,and my own weak mentality.I realized:I'm different.So is everyone else. No one is obligated to understand you.Some things in life you are on your own with.

I've learned to enjoy life more this way.I Feel like I can take on everything everday,and Though it may stay a dream. My goal in life will always be:I want my artwork to express the way I view this world. So maybe one day, people will understand me more.If it ever comes true, time will tell.But I will always use that as a reason to strive to get better at art.

Okay now. This comment is begging to be skipped.So long, so descriptive, it's boring. lol

Very good question.

I still don't find myself. I guess, when you find yourself is when you're satisfy, right?

Tell me - did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star?
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

When I am in the hood, I find myself to be a scared little white boy.

My voice pitch changes, the regular decisions I make is completely different, my perspective changes, my appearance, choice of music, my mood, even my dreams change.

How I would proceed to change: I would usually find something on t.v. and say to myself, "I want to be her, wife material and yet childish. Mature when needed". A couple days I would imagine a life story for the character I am changing to, last day is for my change of appearance.

I only do this alone, but when my family is around. I don't speak a word, I have no idea why. It is not just my family that describes me quiet, it is my classmates and friends. I'd get into random conversations from time to time when I suddenly become outgoing.

So the question is, Have you find yourself? Please explain how!


Wow, that pretty much describes me to a T!

There are times I think I have, but then I just lose myself again. Eh. I guess it may be since I'm a teenager I'm still changing so there is no definite 'me' yet. You'll find yourself with time. Don't stress so much over it and just enjoy yourself.

@Project1001

Finding yourself takes time, patience and tons of what I like (I think most people) to call "soul searching." I think it ties in together with loving yourself, being comfortable with yourself, accepting what you lack and improving who you are.

I feel like we've all found ourselves y'know? We all look in the mirror and understand that "Hey! Thats me!" It's not wrong to want to be like someone else (or rather) live the lifestyle they're living. I guess you can consider it... a new goal and such \^o^/

As for the change in your overall character, is it a good one? It sounds like it! Sounds natural for anyone really. Maybe you should take up acting?

I just realized last week, that I had forgotten most of myself, I was so busy with university and work that I kind of forgot who I was...I went to visit my parents house and it was like I was visiting my friend's house..I tought about it a lot, maybe it was just growing up..I don't know..so much changed. But this week I remembered stuff, how I was before, my old ideology and philosophy..I used to be unique, me...but it feels like I started to follow the stream, became blinded and started acting like everyone in society..until recently ..I remembered and it feels better now.
