My identity

I am a South Indian American tamizh brahmin girl. I like paruppu sadam. I love going to temple. I tear up for Jana Gana Mana. I believe in baby steps, consistent efforts, and perseverance. Kurti is my favorite attire. I admire people who are resilient and have reinvented themselves. I assume positive intent and give benefit of doubt. I am lazy, risk averse, and a procrastinator. I am afraid of heights, speed, and grand dreams. I am a self-sabotager. I need my 8 hours of sleep. Without my me time, I am not me. Allowing people to be who they are, is the best gift that oe can give to someone. Freewill is what I value the most. I practice space in togetherness., Empathy comes naturally to me. People fascinate me. I am a lifelong learner. I take comfort in inner strength, and strive for inner peace.

Independent of the different roles that I play and the pursuits and hobbies I undertake, these values and beliefs are what make me me. Much gratitude for life experiences that have helped shape my identity.

  2. Knowing own self is one of the greatest knowledge, in my opinion. I am NOT surprised how well you know YOU.
    I don’t know myself that well. I wonder sometimes ‘.why did I do that/say that’, in hindsight ( not years later..few days/weeks later’ Sigh!
    I share these traits with you though ‘ I am lazy, risk averse, and a procrastinator’. May be the fellow Taurean that I am πŸ™‚

    1. Mia – Let’s just say that I make the same mistake over and over again, so I am forced to learn more about myself!
