Searching for Pieces

            In the process of living out the years of our lives, there comes a time when we realize that, somehow, we’ve gotten lost along the way. What are we looking for? We are searching for the pieces of ourselves that we’ve lost, for we know that without them it is difficult to experience real moments.

           Some of them were taken away by our parents or caretakers, in an attempt to turn us into what they thought we should be.

Some of them we’ve given away to others in an attempt to be accepted or loved. Some of them we’ve hidden away, frightened of what others might think if they knew our secret selves.  And some of them we’ve simply forgotten about, because we’ve been trying so hard to be something other than whom we really are.
