It's a simple question that becomes more complex the more that you think about it. It often happens that the more we think about something, the greater the depth, meaning, and significance that it has...and many would argue that there is nothing more significant than the concept of self-identity. How we perceive ourselves has a massive impact, whether conscious or not, on the way that we interact with others, view the world around us, and our own internal thought processes and feelings. But then, it can be as simple or as complex as you like. So I ask you again, members of LV: Who are you? What qualities do you possess that you feel define you as an individual? What aspects of yourself do you seek to nurture and develop, and what do you seek to repress or change...and why? How do you perceive yourself as an individual, and how satisfied are you with this? Also, this is a thread for self-reflection, not self-judgement. Even if you are not satisfied with who you are and see yourself as holding many negative qualities, try to see things in a more objective light - remember, from a certain perspective, a negative can be a positive! ...of course, the reverse is also true, but that is neither here nor there...or is it? You tell me!
