A recent experience left me asking questions about how we perceive ourselves, which in turn left me wondering whether I should be questioning this at all.
Is questioning oneself and what you portray to the outside world a form of weakness? Or is this a form of self-awareness?
One theory tells us to be happy with who we are, and if someone doesn’t accept us then we are better off without them.
Another theory proclaims the opposite; self-reflection is the path to enlightenment.
How will we ever know our weaknesses if we never question ourselves, and question the reasons why others choose not to want or accept us, whether it be because of our looks, personalities or beliefs.
How much can we question ourselves before we lose the essence of who we are?
Or does it actually only come down to luck? Is it more about being in the right place at the right time, or convenience, when it comes to companionship, opportunities, and a happy life?
So is questioning who we are and how we portray ourselves irrelevant in the grand scheme of things?
