I like this quote, yet I’m having a hard time saying why. There’s something about it that encourages me to rely on myself more; to trust that I know who I am, even if I don’t know myself fully. Is it even possible to know oneself fully?
When I’m uncertain, there may be good cause to look to others for guidance. But there may be equal cause to sit with myself; to try and gain a clearer sense of my own being.
I like to think the quote is reminding me that my sense of self is actually there; that there is a knowing, and I can rely on it.
And to remind me that the opinions of others may, in fact, be clouded by their own not knowing.
Does this quote resonate for you? I’d love to get your take on it.
