It takes some people time to learn who they are. At times, they don't like who they are and venture out being something/someone else they're not. By the time they get through making things harder for themselves and everyone else by doing so, they come full circle realizing they have to accept who they are, where they come from, and who they are becoming.
Who you are begins in your genetic makeup. There are some things that are just inevitable. For instance, my parents enjoyed cooking and feeding people. I do also. Unlike them, I do not care how much everyone enjoys my cooking, I do not plan to start a catering business or open a restaurant. My love for cooking stems from both parents. My two sisters and I were always around food. No microwave nor instant food for us. Just home cooked meals. I want good cooking and good conversation for everyone just like my parents did. Although I don't have the heart for starting a business cooking like my parents and one of my sisters, I accept the fact that I will not make plenty of money cooking for people, but I can make something out of writing a cook book with our recipes. I accept that I am different in a lot of ways. I am a writer. Always have been. Always will be. My other sister just rather serve the food and converse with the people. My sisters and I are all different in relation to cooking and serving.
It's OK to be different. Learn how to accept and appreciate what separates you from others. It will make a difference in your happiness. It has with us.
