Finding yourself

Image may contain: text that says '"FINDING YOURSELF" IS NOT REALLY HOW IT WORKS. You AREN'T A TEN- DOLLAR BILL IN LAST WINTER'S COAT pocKeT. YoU ARE ALSO NOT LOST. YOUR TRUE SELF IS RIGHT THERE, BURIED UNDER CULTURAL CONDITIONING, OTHER PEDPLE'S OPINIONS, AND INACCURATE CONCLUSIONS YoU DREW AS A KID THAT BECAME YOUR BELIEFS ABOUT WHo You ARE. "FINDING YOURSELF" IS ACTUALLY RETURNING TO YOURSELF AN UNLEARNING, AN EXCAVATION, A REMEMBERING WHO You WERE BEFORE THE WORLD GOT ITS HANDS ON YOU. EMILY MCDOWELL'
