A short blabbering of some random thoughts.
We are multidimensional
Often we feel the need to label ourselves, and in most cases we do so by our occupation or what we are studying.
It’s important to remember that as humans we are all multidimensional.
Yes we have our career oriented side, but we may also have a side that’s passionate about a hobby, or a side that’s dedicated to caring for family or a side that’s in love with travelling the world.
A while back I felt a bit lost about myself and needed to do something to restore some confidence. I decided to list down the many different things that I am. The longer the list grew, the more I reminded myself of how much I’ve accomplished in my life so far.
It put a few things into perspective and gave me that much needed boost.
I would most definitely recommend this to anyone else in a rut. Regardless of how few dimensions you think you have, this exercise will force you to analyse yourself and realise how much you have to offer as a person.
When people meet me, depending on the situation, they often encounter only one dimension of me. I have an internal conflict where I want to share all dimensions of me at once but I also want to hold something back, as if I’m packaging a surprise to be opened later.
I guess if people stick around for long enough, they’ll see a lot more!
If not, hopefully what they do encounter still leaves a positive mark.
Either way I shouldn’t forget what I am.
