I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my own identity and how I’m always discovering new things about myself. When you’re in high school and college, it seems to be expected that you will be making these kinds of discoveries all the time and constantly learning and growing as a person. I think it’s quite sad that our society doesn’t really acknowledge that this process never ends.
I haven’t been very intentional about my personal discovery since finished graduate school. I had it in my head that I knew who I was and that’s who I was going to be. Not so much.
Over the past few years I’ve discovered a lot about myself. None of this is earth shattering. None of this really changed how I live, but it’s given me some insight into who I am and why I am the way I am.
