What would you do?

I’m working on a funny blog post, really I swear! I can actually be quite comical if you have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor.

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet. Woah, I know! I am never short on words. But I was thinking while I was in the shower (because doesn’t everyone do their best thinking in the shower?) and I realized why my struggle is confusing me so greatly this time around.

I am strong. I am independent. I have spent the past 15 years perfecting independence to the point where I do not know who I am without it. I define independence!

Who are you? What trait defines you? If you could think of your greatest asset, what would that be?

…Do you have it?

…Are you thinking about how much a part of you that thing is?

Ok now here is my question to you:

What would you do if that strongest asset, that thing that defines you, that part of you that has carried you through all the ups & downs life has thrown your way, the one that is so ingrained in you that you don’t know who you are without it, the one that makes you the person that you are was taken away? How would you wrap your brain around it and find a way to move forward without it?

My fierce independence was taken away…and despite thinking about it all day, every day, I haven’t quite figured out who I am without it.

What would you do?

  1. Take the ups and downs… Move forward every day, knowing who you are. Knowing who you are and being true to yourself will get you through.. You are still that person.

    • You’re right, inside I am still that person. Outside I am currently 100% dependent on other people. Still can’t quite come to terms with that knowledge.
