Thank You For Showing Me Who I Am

I am not perfect. I am far from it. In fact there are moments when I think everyone else is full of it except for me. There are times when I think my way is the right way, regardless if others’ ways or methods get them to the same place or to the same conclusion. But who am I to say that? Who am I to judge that or to judge others? Cannot others show me a different way of understanding? Cannot others shine light on something previously left in the dark for me? I am no one really. I am just as everyone else is, trying to find out who I am and how I fit into the whole, and trying to find out who and what others are, and how they fit into the whole. Humility is a wonderful thing, if we allow for it.

Sometimes we can go through life thinking we are more superior than the next person, or more superior than other animals or creatures. Why should we think that though? Is it our egos that drive us? Is it the fear that we may not actually know anything? Perhaps we don’t know anything, and perhaps that is the purpose of this life…to experience it, not only for ourselves, but to experience it through our interaction and observation of others. If we did truly know everything there is to know, then why do we live this life? Is it to show others we already know? Who are we trying to prove ourselves to, if not ourselves?

Life is an interesting thing. Our beliefs cannot be forced on others. We can only share our views. Some will agree and others may not. It doesn’t matter though does it, because in the end we all make our own choices, and we all live our own lives. Although we do live our own lives and although we are responsible for our own choices, we do have an effect on others, whether we want to or not. What may not affect us now, may affect us later, but we must all learn to go through life with an open heart and an open mind, because what we think we know to be the truth now, may be a pot full of lies? The truth is, I don’t know.

To those who have had an effect on me, I thank you, for you have shown me who I am.
