To be nobody but yourself…

eecummings1“To be nobody but yourself – in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else – means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.”

—-love this quote from the so-totally cute and cool, e.e. cummings

  1. Fascinating… I’m not sure I agree with e.e. on this. I know, I know… probably not a popular comment, lol. Is the world is trying to make me somebody else? I don’t know… My thinking tries to do this… but the more I investigate it, question it, see through it, the less of a fight being myself is.

    Life flows in a way I could never fight to achieve. Just the thought of a life long struggle is exhausting. But then that means truly facing the darkside and dicovering what those subconscious thoughts even are (hence my little blog).

    Just a different slant on things. Discard at will!
