1. That I was my job....
then I got fired.
2. That I was my car...
then my car got repossessed.
3. That I was my child..
then my child stopped talking to me.
4. That I was my degree...
then I was no longer working in the field of my study.
5. That I was my special relationship...
then she would no longer answer her phone and she quit calling me.
6. That I was my money ...
then the well slowly dried up.
7. Then I realized that I was nobody beyond the identity that I had so carefully constructed for myself.
These so-called functions that I filled were all gone.
Who am I? Nothing.
I'm okay with being nothing.
For the first time in my life, I realized that I didn't need either of the things mentioned above.
I am back to my True Self.
I am FREE. No bored of directors to answer to.
I am unencumbered.
Who would you be without all your stuff?
