I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
I’m watching Law and Order SVU, and in the episode, one of the characters keeps quoting the first two lines of that poem.
I keep getting told -in regards to my engagement- that I’m way too young to get married. Someone said to me, “You’ll be a completely different person in 5 years. You wont even recognize who you are now.”
That’s really stuck with me. Mainly because I think it’s bullshit. 5 years ago, I was the same person I am now. Now completely, but when you get down to the CORE of who I am, I’m basically the same. Yes, some preferences have changed, and I’ve matured a lot, but other than one drastic thing that happened about 4 years ago that changed me, I still have the same personality.
I think we’re all born with unlimited potential to develop into whatever our experiences make us. A blank canvas, if you will. Yes, we all have an inert nature that guides our basic decisions when were young and we’re still in the business of self preservation. But I believe that every small experience molds us into who we are. And I believe that when we’re very young, those basic choices of likes and dislikes stick with us, and that we quickly develop a personality at a VERY young state, possibly even while still in the womb.
I’m still the same person I was 5 years ago. I’m really still the same person I was 15 years ago.
So no, I’m not nobody. Neither are you. Who are you?
