Who Am I?

I never really knew what it meant to question who I was until now. I would hear people talking about "finding themselves" or "searching for their true selves" but I always found it strange. Who am I? You are Amber Harman Haas silly. Two last names... Identity crisis problem number one. But for real, thinking deeper...who am I?

I find myself wishing I was like someone else nearly 100% of the time. Wishing I was as successful as, pretty as, outgoing as, and etc as that person on tv, the Internet, or across the street. So when instead of wishing I was like someone else and think...maybe I should just be me I find that I have no idea who that is. Maybe I am afraid of me, or just don't like me, and of course I always wonder how others perceive me.

So who am I?

Good question, but I have no answer yet.

  1. I think we all struggle with this. You will find yourself. You don't need compare yourself to others.

  2. I always - when I was a teenager - thought the idea of "finding oneself" was one of the dumbest things I'd ever heard. I mean, if you don't know who you are, you're totally lame and cliche and you have problems, right?

    Then I didn't think about it again until I was about 25, when I started to wonder what it meant to be who I am. I'm 27 now, and I'm still learning about myself. I think, if you're constantly learning about who you are, what your limits are, and even figuring out what kind of personality you have (I sometimes feel like I'm nothing, I have no personality like a cardboard cutout) then you're on the right track. I assume that by the time I'm 40 I'll know who I am, and I'll be comfortable with who and what I am. Getting to that point is part of life's journey: that oft confusing, sometimes painful, sometimes gleeful journey on a map that's foggy and the only things we can see clearly are the things we've passed through already.

  3. You're made of awesome.

  4. I wouldn't want you to be anyone else than who you are. That is the way God made you and you are special in His sight. The grass always looks greener on the other side wishing who you'd like to be....well....it's not. We all try to be the best we can be and that's all we can ask for.

  5. I think I am the luckiest Dad in the world to have a handsome talented son, and a beautiful smart and talented daughter. Just look at your wedding pictures Amber, I think you look like a princess. You are a wonderful witty sweet woman, all you need is to to hit the confidence button and go out there and knock em dead.
