Do you ever have a moment when you’re reacting to a situation and you suddenly think “This isn’t me! Why am I doing this, acting like this, thinking like this.” I’ve had one of those moments jus now when I’ve been feeling stressed and uptight about something I have no reason to be that worried about. I felt like I was in some kind of weird vicious circle and I wasn’t being successful at reasoning myself out of it. Then I suddenly had the thought “This isn’t me, I’m not this person.” Suddenly I felt so much better and not only did I feel like I was aware again of who I am; but also what I’m doing in life and why I’m doing it. It was like everything came into focus and I could breathe again, for what felt like the first time in ages. It was an incredible moment and one which I hope will stay with me. I know the feelings fade with time; but when it does I hope it won’t be long before I come back to remembering the real me.
Do you ever feel like that? How do you remember who you are inside?
