BEING

How many cares one loses 
when one decides not to be something
but to be someone.
- C. C.


I am learning to acquire this state of mind. 
Recognize that you are someone to others.
And then, to become someone not just for others but to become someone for yourself.

Someone for yourself. I really like the sound of that.

Amen & Yes to your thought! I have run on the edge of C.C.'s quote many times, 'to be something' or who you thought I am... and have learned..
If one can't be yourself, truly, how can one be for another?
Thanks Mol, for a post that reminded me of self. OXOX, Hol
