“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.” – Thomas Szasz.
I think that we all know who we are as children and that our family, friends, and educators sometimes confuse us and we lose that knowing. Then as adults we realize that the path we are on, is not really our own. If we go back to those dreams we had as children, we can “find” ourselves again. The creation part comes from deciding how we express that in our adult lives.
