Re: If I change am I still me? James K

My fear is that there is no real me. And that the medications and therapy are peeling back the layers of falseness to eventually expose the truth: my core is a container of nothing. It never had enough nurturing and sunlight to grow, so I'm simply whatever people want me to be. Which isn't even consistent with what they tell me to be.

And that's not all bad. Most people like me, because I can be who they want/need me to be. So if i actually do discover "me" -- what if I'm not likeable?

If you know who you are, I don't think you will lose that. You will just be able to be you, instead of being the protector of you. Good luck.
