“We have the choice of two identities: the external mask which seems to be real…and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing, but who can give himself eternally to the truth in whom he subsists.” Thomas Merton
What is your true self?
I’ve been contemplating this question today. I think one’s true self is the person no one sees, the thoughts no one hears, the actions not witnessed. Who are you behind closed doors?
I desire to be someone I can feel proud of, even when no one is looking.
