What Made You Who You Are?

What made you who you are? Perhaps it was supportive and encouraging parents. Perhaps it was a lack of them. Perhaps strong ties to the community shaped you. Perhaps isolation molded your experience. Maybe you only remember having a rosy childhood. Maybe your insides were shattered by trauma. These experiences leave an imprint. You may crave the company and chaos of having people all around you as a result of growing up that way. You may carry a deep loneliness that others just don’t seem to understand. Either way, whatever you face as a result of what you’ve been through aim to take a moment right now and send some compassion inward. You didn’t mold yourself.
