Okay. So here I am. Still trying to figure out who "I" am! As I have pondered this, some other things have occurred to me. I've wondered this from time to time. How well does anybody know me? I think about this in relation to the people who I can see, feel and touch on a daily basis and I also wonder this about the people who I interact with online. So, my question to you is...if you've read or participated in any of my past discussions. Even if this is the first discussion of mine that you've seen. Have you formed an opinion of me. What do you think you know about me? I am definitely NOT fishing for compliments here. Even if you don't like me, I'll be interested in knowing your thoughts. So, tell me. Who am I?

Wow, what a great question, and I hope that it's appeal for candor is both truly sincere and welcome... The fact is, I've come to learn quite a bit from you, and I've come to appreciate both the things that we agree on and disagree on. Earlier on I had formed a negative impression, but whether it was your doing or not, I found myself re-evaluating and realize how wrong I was, and quite the *&@#! I was for coming to those erroneous conclusions. You are, in my not so humble opinion, a passionate and compassionate person deserving of respect and affection. David A. Reedy...

You are a rather deep individual who looks at things on a bit ratical level at times. I think you have been off of here for awhile I am not able to form a very good opinion because of this. Not fishing for compliments? Fine. I won't give any.

I can bet you are not alone in asking the question "Who am I". Someone else's opinion of you will not define who you are. In reality, "who am I" is best determined by you yourself, as only you will know you really are. Just be truthful to yourself and you will know who you are! As for me, "who am I" is "I am me, myself". Yes, arrogant and egoistic, you may say but that is the confidence I have in myself and it is that that makes me. LOL.

I think there are usually two choices here--be who you want to be or be who others want you to be. If you're lucky you can manage both without giving up either. I hope you've found the balance.

I have just responded to a few posts. I think of you as a friend but I really don't know the real you.I know a few facts like you are a loving mother but what you really like,I don't know.In these few week sI realized that people only know what you want them to know about you.The one person that Really knows the real me is my bestfriend. We had been talking here for years but two weeks ago I really opened up to him and he is doing the same.It is strange,I am his first friend that's a girl and not a girlfriend. He is English and I don't know if that's why he is G-d smacked.It took some time but now he knows he is my best friend. It is soo great to have at least one person who really knows me. I just learned t does take time to Really get to know someone.And it takes courage to really open up.

Well, I could give you my name as Derek.. But that's not who I am.. I can tell you that I practice Zen and therapy, but I am not just this either. So, as I find difficulty in defining who I am[i][/i], I try not to judge who others are either Seriously, I have from time to time responded to your discussions and I feel I like you as a friend and fellow human being. My thoughts are that like the rest of us, you are reaching out to others here on myLot to form friendships and have interesting and enjoyable discussions, and that is what I like about you. Like me, you feel like a piece of the character that we call myLot. - Derek

I don't think that you have always taken the easy route. I think you have learned a lot of things from experience. I don't think that you take ANYTHING for granted. I think you appreciate everything. I think you ponder and sometimes are alright that there is no wrong or right answer. I believe you find comfort in words. And of course, I am still thinking.

miamilady well I know you are sensitive, you are quite intelligent, You are a woman and a thinker, you like' to write,I think, and you like to mylot too. You are introspective and like to puzzle out things. I have sort of formed a mental image of you from other discussions of yours that I have responded to. So how am I doing?

Of course - and many of us have even formed a mental picture that could be way off the mark. Some of us have glanced at your profile as well. I will happy to think about it for a few minutes and come up with a "Profile" sound fun?
