Who are you?
You are the story you tell yourself
This is not a philosophical piece,but it could be.
Psychologists have discovered that there is a constant stream of narrative going on in your head, trying to assign meaning to the actual events as they happen.
Sometimes, more than often, the events as they unfold, make no sense to the mind, and so the mind concocts its own explanations and seamlessly weaves it into its narrative.
You are a story you tell yourself.You observe yourself as an outsider.You engage in introspection, and with great confidence you see the history of your life with all the characters and settings- and you at the center, as a protagonist in the tale of who you are.
Realize this.You are a confabulatory creature by nature.You are always explaining to yourself the motivations for your actions and the causes to the effects in your life, whether they are real or not.
Over time, these explanations become your idea of who you are and your place in the world.
