Me ?


I have lived with Me for…well, my whole life.  Although we shared the same bed, the same toothbrush, the same lovers, even the same skin, I never took the time to get to know the real Me.  Not until a tragic event made it necessary, and I must admit, I didn't like everything I discovered.  The real Me and I share many of the same likes and dislikes, and at first I thought that we could be friends.  However, the more I learned about Me, the more things I found that I truly disliked.

This presented a major problem because I could not simply walk away from Me and make a new friend.  Unfortunately, Me, Myself, and I are conjoined, not as triplets, but as one.  I had no choice, no other options; I had to live with Me and in order to do this, one of us had to change.

It was almost immediately apparent that I would be the one to make most, if not all, necessary changes.  If it were left up to Me, nothing would ever change, so I took charge of the situation.  I tried to look at myself through the eyes of others and see Me as they might.  When I did, I was surprised at how hard it was on Me and seriously considered quitting before inflicting any more pain.  Nevertheless, I continued on slowly so that now, four years later, I have gained some knowledge that I would like to share with you.

A big problem that I had to overcome was my unconscious belief that the most important persons were: ME, MYSELF, and I.

The most important rule for living alone:  learn to like yourself and become your own best friend. 

For Me, this is all still a work in progress.
