What I Once Was

It is one of the greatest reflections to ask who you are now and how much you’ve changed.

Over the many years of my life, I find this thought in my mind. It’s kind of like a self-evaluation, but much like any evaluations, it doesn’t help in getting things done, only to show you that time has passed and if it passed well.

There are many variations to this as well, questions like “If I was in this situation from that past point in my life, would I do things differently?”. The truth is, we can never tell. There are also some points where people tell you, “You’ve changed” or “You seem to be doing better.”

No one really knows you as well as you know yourself. Everyone else sees only an outline of you. A mere silhouette, a characteristic that can be put into words wherein inside is like a churning engine, waiting, changing. Even your closest friends can’t tell the difference.

It happens so gradually that even when you look in the mirror and think about yourself a year ago. It’s not the same.

That’s who I was, and this is who I am.
