    I don’t think there’s a definitive answer to this question. But I’ll do my best, or rather, my personal, subjective answer to your question.

    Literally, I am a compiled image that consists of social image, governmental documents, financial history, interpersonal communications, and a judgement of my actions. This is a fragile understanding though, as its only support comes from preceding images and perceptions by others.

    My own self-image is less reliable, though I am stronger in its conviction. I believe that I am a hard-working man who is intelligent but not as intelligent as people give me credit for. I believe that I am curious, and that I have a lot to say, but I rarely know how to say it.

    Me? I’m just the little old lady that lives in the Butterscotch Castle

    I get to be old, now. I get to be who I am and even skip what I want to skip, because I am old. I get to go to bed at 4:00 am and get up at 10:00 or 11:00, or stay in bed until noon. It is my life and I live it the way I want to. Let the rest of them schedule work and meetings at 8:00 am, or come knocking at my door at 9:00 am —— I am not going to be getting out of bed at stupid o’clock in the morning!!! If you want me alert for your big doings, schedule them for afternoon, after I have had my coffee and put some clothes on.
    I get to use the excuse that “I forgot” and half the time, it is true.
    I get to make noise by running my cane along the picket fence — because I can!
    Politically, I am one of 65,000,000 conservatives that are watching as the “Deep State” goes down and arrests are made. I watch it over my coffee cup and I smile.

    I am part of a team with a thorough understanding that I am not really a team player.

    That understanding forces me to try harder to fit into situations through a conscious effort knowing that more gets done through teamwork than independently.

    I can be empathetic to people in distress, but cynical if I think their challenges are manageable if they put forth an effort.

    I think I am closed minded about my open mindedness. I wrestle with that.

    Politically, I lean right because I think economics prioritized, allows for management of a social agenda. A government is in place to serve society and I can relate that to how I am in a position of authority with my own family, but overall I am there to support their needs. I don’t use my authority for personal gain, other than to feel satisfaction that they are secure in achieving their goals.

    The “protection” they are afforded comes from encouraging their ability to independently operate as functional members of society.

    I don’t worry so much about failure as long as it is only a step towards achievement. I don’t think I set really big goals, as much as I set series of smaller goals that can add up.

    …and I talk too much…including to myself. This place is as much about talking to myself, as it is to personally respond to the person asking the question.

    I feel like there are two me’s. one is what some refer to as a lower self, which is my identity on the physical plane. this is a mix of all the things anyone ever told me or showed me during my time here on earth that made imprints into my brain, along with my self -reinforced messages. my lower self has an identity as a mother, a social worker, a partner, a friend. I think of myself as all my parts. part of my therapy was family system therapy which showed me I have parts such as a little girl, an adolescent, present day me, and elderly grandma me. I have had to learn that each of these parts offers a gift and know when to let the parts cOme out and use their gifts.

    there is a higher me. it is a place that above everything. it is the awareness part. when I reach it , I feel I can see everything there is and I sit in accordance with everything I see, but the moment something threatens, the lower self takes over to maintain her place in the physical plane.

    Wow! So many deep and thoughtful responses. Thank you! I cheated by using a meme, but the meme kind of nails it.

    And, here is a song that describes many of us. Just be you, and be brave.

    You can be amazing
    You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
    You can be the outcast
    Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
    Or you can start speaking up

    Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
    When they settle ‘neath your skin
    Kept on the inside and no sunlight
    Sometimes a shadow wins
    But I wonder what would happen if you

    Say what you wanna say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly, I wanna see you be brave
    With what you want to say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly, I wanna see you be brave

    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I wanna see you be brave

    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I wanna see you be brave

    Everybody’s been there,
    Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
    Fallen for the fear
    And done some disappearing,
    Bow down to the mighty
    Don’t run, just stop holding your tongue

    Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
    Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
    Show me how big your brave is

    Say what you wanna say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly, I wanna see you be brave
    With what you want to say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly, I wanna see you be brave

    And since your history of silence
    Won’t do you any good,
    Did you think it would?
    Let your words be anything but empty
    Why don’t you tell them the truth?

    Say what you wanna say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly, I wanna see you be brave
    With what you want to say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly, I wanna see you be brave

    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I wanna see you be brave

    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    I just wanna see you
    See you be brave

    I just wanna see you (yeah)
    I just wanna see you (oh ooh)
    I just wanna see you
