The older you get the more you realize your true identity.
The struggle for most people is their identity is wrapped up in what other people think they are.
What most people think they are, is what other people think they are.
Living life acting to fill a role you've created yourself to be.
The day you break free from your self imposed mold is the first day you can start living in your own purpose.
You are you.
Your value is determined by you, and the circumstances of your own making.
Obviously social value and recognition are important.
But they aren't the mirror of your own worth.
They can guide you.
But you determine your identity.
You control the narrative of you.
Start living up to your truths.
