I had a "friend and mentor" tell me "One of these days you're going to figure out who you are." That comment was ridiculous to me - I thought, "who would know me better than me?"

14 years later, I see what he was talking about. I was trying to project a person I wasn't, and the tension between my façade and my true self drove me into a pit.

I imagine you and I went through a similar process to get to a place of self-acceptance. The funny thing is, I've become more like the guy I was pretending to be simply by learning to accept and appreciate myself.

Glad you get to travel such an exciting road in life!
