Who am I really ?
At the moment, I'm the person writing this thread.
I endeavor with the hope that you will ask yourself this
question and answer it here. My intentention is to provoke
you to take a very deep look, at the person you see yourself to be.

But don't just think about it write it down. Give yourself over to
discussion. I'm simply aiming at what defines you, in your own mind,
to see if you're truly happy, with where the winds of life have sent
you. Or how your sails were set against them. And in either case I
hope you will take some time, right here and now, to examine who you
really are. No doubt you may be reluctant.

Some may be worried about measureing up. I can only assure you that
I myself will hold no rule. And my own interest is mental health and
happiness from only a philosophical point of observation. I will ask
everyone to participate with kindness and civility.

Thanks for reading

I don't understand myself well enough to do that for you...at least, not completely. All I know is that I am incomplete, and I have some vague ideas of what I hope to become, and some fractured perceptions of what I already am. I am disappointed, yet hopeful. Bent, yet resilient. Darkened, yet glimmering. I'm a survivor, and I will keep on surviving.

I'm the person answering your question, but wondering if I can give you the 'right' answer, then chastising myself because you have said you won't judge. But then wondering whether or not whether to post this, in case it's not what you're looking for. But deciding to post any way, and hope it's ok.
Scottish Calvinist background? Oh yes.

I'm interested that you chose to fixate on that particular word. But not interested enough to ask why.

I don't believe fixate would be the right word. I just found it interesting
that you would use it and was hoping you might elaborate as to why ?
That's all. No biggy and you can choose not to if you like of course.

"Darkened". Worn, weary, bitter, beaten, confused, lost, astray...but still standing, with enough strength to move forward as long as I have to.

I thought this would be good for people
just to talk about themselves a little bit.
Provide some insight to the members who
are actually interested in those they share
the boards with. I guess that scares people.

I'm sorry if you found that response rude. I really didn't intend for it to come over like that. I just asked myself how I really felt at that very moment, and answered you. Sorry.

No no if I had found it rude that would be judging your response.
I wanted to reply some how so I thought to give you some incentive
and reassurance. That's all.

Well that's ok then! But now I've gloomied your thread. And I'm not so gloomy, really. So I'll tell you something about me - I'm happy when I'm by the sea, with my kids or seeing Scotland win the World Cup. And I've achieved 2 out of 3, so yeah, life is good just now!

If, as you say you the person writing the thread then am I am you ( If who you are is defined as the person writing {in} the thread)?
Are you{ as the person writing the thread} then defined by the content you put in the thread?
When you stop writing the thread who are you?
Will the person disappear or was the person never there in the first place= was it just a thought of who you are?
When you are not writing the thread who are you?
Are you truly happy?

Hi Randyvs,

First off thanks for creating a different thread. One where people can talk among themselves about themselves and not some corrupt, murdering, money hoarding, alien hiders.


Who am I really... that is a very difficult question to answer. I could tell you what makes me happy and what I would like to do with my life but that's not actually me. Where does one start?

I think I am someone else; some thing else maybe. I don't think I AM as such... I know I am a person with flesh and blood at the moment but from what I have felt, not necessarily learnt, during my time I can say that I am un-ordinary.

I am a seeker, a helper, a teacher, a leader, a decision maker. At the same time though; I am distracted, confused and following. I am not light/good or bad/dark. I follow intuition with instance because I know that if I feel my way about I cannot choose wrongly. I am human, I think.

I disassociate from the normal and I purposely seek to gain more information (power if that is what anyone would like to refer to it as). I don't get involved with others on a grand scale, I stay observing and disconnected.

I can tell you without hesitation, I am not happy, in the sense that I feel content with how my life has panned out so far, I don't think it'll change much but that does not bother me.

Are you going to talk about yourself? Who are you really?

When I stopped writing this thread, I became someone
who thought someone else would never ask !


So at the moment I'm the writer of this thread whom you
have proven wrong and am about to answer the question
I imposed. Thank you for asking.

I'm a very happy person that despite tough situations is able
to keep his wife smiling, laughing and bragging on the phone
to friends and family about how I do so.

There are very few
life occurrences that can get me down and keep me there. My
spirit is resilient and always sees the humor in everything. And
knows if and when it's applicable. So I'm not a clown. Just an
extremely hard person to keep down. I'm well grounded and
would be lost without the Son.

Sweet and your welcome.
I thank you also for asking about myself and provided an answer
previous to answering your reply. If I may, I simply have a wish that will
be my prayer for you. With your permission only. That you find your happiness
in abundance where ever the hard winds may direct your life.

I am also
someone who grew very tired of fighting those winds. And decided to let
them by my guide for sometime. To my surprise, I ended up where I am now.
Content and happy.
But once again I must fight those hard blowing winds as they have not settled.
But did only relent for sometime.
For now I have this for you. I hope you enjoy.

That you are very happy is good to hear but I'm afraid that did not answer
the question" who are you".
What is being done( writing) is not who you are.


Some say to look at the question and get the answer " Who am I "it is useful to look at what you are not.
The things we identify with we say are part of us when in fact we are not what we think we are .
Its the best question to ask but get an answer.

If you were interested in personality and happiness I am sorry I took the very good question "Who am I " seriously as so many people identify with a personality, habits and thinking which are all based on memory and can and do change .
I think its the one question every 'person' needs to answer.

I am my Fathers son, my childrens Father, my wifes husband.
I am he who realizes he has sworn enemies, but holds the reins
of hate for them tightly.

I am a friend not only to those I know but also to those I don't.
I cherish my God given life and would love to make him smile
by being grateful for all the world that has been given to me.

I am he who thank God and thru Christ fears no evil or death.
I am truly a child of God. By faith and thru grace.
For I am a sinner and I know I am evil and unworthy and a
hypocrite.

But I am also he who is made of clay destined to be my
Creators perfect work.

Would that suffice ?

I am a man awed by the awesomeness of the unkown. I seek to unravel that which I don't understand and quesiton all that I think I do.

I am an artist by heart, I love playing guitar or blending vinyl together. I enjoy painting with qouache and acrylic but work in business management. *shrug*

I'm an ATSer simply because those in my local vicinity don't share the same interests and if they do are probably lurking here on ATS unaware of each others existence. I simply love hobnobbing with great minds and great people and this makes for quite the melting pot of thoughts and ideas. Although often times frustrating, ATS is a family within itself and I am happy to be a small part of that family.

Ah very well said. I am with you in awe of this great place to spend time with others.
I can't imagine spending the time I do any where else on the web. A great praise you
give a worthy endeavor.
