On Saturday I was asked by someone to say a little about myself eg Who are you?
This made me really stop and question myself. Actually who am I? I know who I have been, I know my labels: wife, mother, daughter, sister, nan etc., but what of me as a person. Am I defined by my profession? I have had a few including medical secretary, teacher and now counsellor. I have various interests including politics, music and social action. I like to learn new things and explore ideas. I tweet with a variety of people, I engage with many different people in many different ways in my real life. Do these things define me?

What makes the core of a person? I believe I have many facets to my personality and so do most people. The one that reflects back to any individual is the one I feel most comfortable with at that moment in time. Does it make me a hypocrite or does it make me adept at making people comfortable in my company? I suppose that depends on whether it is a false front or a real aspect of *me*. I hope that all of my dimensions and facets are full of integrity. Can I ever be sure? So what is the answer to that question…”Who are YOU?” The truth is I am sure I don’t know who I am because I’m continually evolving adding and taking away from my *self* on the journey to becoming the best Me I can be whatever I face and wherever that is.


Whatever you know of me please always be aware that I am not always what I seem I am so much more…and so much less!

    Mirroring others can confuse the ego and perhaps you’ll never know who your are. Thats my experience after a lifetime of trying

      I mirror somtimes in therapy sessions IF I feel it will be productive. What I meant about choosing which facet of my persona to reveal is linked to my boundaries and how my intuition feels. It is not to mirror in that sense but to help keep me safe. Never false just different degrees of connectivity xx

        Understand and accept your motive, as long as you can differentiate and don’t lose your way in a labyrinth of feelings and emotions
