“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else
is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Most of us spend our entire lives in one body (at least I don’t think any full body transplants have been successful so far).
Day after day after day, for as far back as we can go, we have been us (and, see, right there, a few people grunted, “Don’t remind me!“). For many people being you is one of the hardest things.
Some of us might not even remember ever truly being ourselves.
I find that mind-boggling and understandable at the same time.
