Who am I? Many people ask themselves that question. While other people, maybe even some of those I just mentioned, say they are trying to find themselves. Well, I guess the ponderance of that type of thinking might be a matter that concerns philosophy.
Why be anything but what you are? Oftentimes, I have heard people say “I just wish I could be myself.” Would it not be wonderful if each and every person accepted each and every other person for who that person is? I say people should quit being two-faced, quit being what others want them to be, and start being who they truly are. Shed the facade and be yourself.
The following is but the first stanza of a poem by Ellen Bailey.
Why would you want to be someone else
When you could be better by being yourself
Why pretend to be someone you are not
When you have something they haven’t got
You really should read the whole poem. It has a very appropriate name, especially given the title of this Roland’s Ramblings blog entry.

God has given you one face, and you make yourself another. ~William Shakespeare
