About Me

Me.

“I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me.
 Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, 
because I alone chose it,
 I own everything about me: my body,
 my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
 whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies,
 my dreams, my hopes, my fears.
 I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.
 Because I own all of me,
 I can become intimately acquainted with me. 
By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. 
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, 
and other aspects that I do not know, but as
 long as I am friendly and loving to myself,
 I can courageously and hopefully look 
for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find
 out more about me. However I look and sound,
 whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel
 at a given moment in time is authentically me.
 If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, 
thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting,
 I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, 
and invent something new for that which I discarded. 
I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do.
 I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, 
to be productive, and to make sense
 and order out of the world of people and things outside of me.
 I own me, I am me, and I am Okay! RAWR!”
