You may spend your whole life trying to be the opposite of the very thing you dislike ...
... only to realize that is exactly who you have become.
What do you do when your mistakes have far exceeded those that you once spoke down upon?
What does it mean to discover the very person you wanted to shield him/her from has been a version of yourself the entire time?
What happens when you disparage an 'enemy' or group of people time and time again only to see them when you look in the mirror?
It can be a tough lesson and very humbling to say the least.
Every now and then we are able to muster up enough courage to take responsibility for our past and present faults and/or mistakes ... and if we truly knew ourselves the way we claimed to know half of the time in life, then a change would take place - or even damage control.
Sometimes we spend so much of our precious time trying to prove to others who we are or are not - that all the energy and hard work placed into creating our version of 'picture perfect' has a way of becoming our greatest downfall.
Strive to be your best self at every opportunity presented, but always be mindful of your reason(s).
So, who exactly are you trying to be and why.
