Who I am is a question I have still yet to answer      
Because the answer always changes before I can set it in stone    
I could use my labels: Introvert, Atheist, Brony, but what for?
Those words alone do not tell my whole story
Besides, those can all change, and I’d never be able to predict otherwise  
We’re not static beings, you and I
We change with our life experiences
It’d be foolish to think we’ll always remain as we are
Who I am right now will likely be a stranger to me within a decade
I’m not even who I was just two years ago, let alone ten
“Who I am” has shifted with the sands of time
From “Scared suck-up vying for the approval of authority figures”
To “Long-haired, denim jacket adorned Metalhead, nostalgic for the ‘80s”
To “Idealistic patriot wanting to devote his life to God and Country”
All these things describe me as I was, not as I am
Things I used to hold dear are no longer relevant
Ideas I thought I would always believe in are now alien
My past selves are like different people to me now
Reminders of all my embarrassments and mistakes
I’ve been cowardly, misguided, pretentious, and just plain stupid
There’s hardly anything I can look back on with a sense of pride
And I predict it will be the same routine going forward
I suppose that makes part of my personality consistent, though
In the end, I’m just an idiot, becoming less idiotic as time goes on


Freedomfighter6's Profile Picture
Phillip Slater
United States
Student of history (majoring in it in college) and an appreciator of art. I like listening to music, watching YouTube videos, and spending time with my friends.

I try to avoid collectivist mentalities and the practice of identity politics. All it does is create more unnecessary tribalism and belittles the importance of being an individual. How you behave as a person and how you treat others is more important than your labels.

I still have much to learn in life, but over time I hope to improve myself and do something worthwhile.
