"In the world through which I travel, I am endlessly creating myself." (Frantz Fanon in Black Skin, White Masks, 1952)
Fanon said something very interesting. The thought of "endlessly creating myself." Sometimes when I pray I ask God to help me become a better me. I don't measure my aspirations with other people because I know that we are all different and we possess our own unique qualities. This weekend I was discussing with a friend the uniqueness of different people and their personalities. My grandmother, Eunice, would say that I was very "peculiar. " :) I sort of giggle when I think of her words because she knew me so well. She meant that I was unpredictable and that I could not be easily defined based on outward apperarance. No, I do not think that I am special. There are many like me. You really don't get to know who we are until you spend some time with us, touch us, and began to absorb us as a person. In those intimate moments you will see many sides of my personality because I am not just one type. I don't think that I require medication or anything to regulate this "disorder" because it is what makes me unique. Remember, It is our "flaws" that sometimes make us so beautiful. Peace~
