Who I Really Am
Have you ever wanted to be someone you're really not?
Do you ever feel forced into a mould by the media, by expectations?
Have you ever felt you needed to 'put on a mask' to face the world?
Listen to the short audio clip below, then think about the questions which follow....
How true is it that we sometimes hide parts of ourselves from others? Do you?
What influences how you see yourself?
What do you think most people are looking for in life?
What are you looking for? Where have you looked for it?
What different things does the society we live in tell us are important in life?
Listen to this next short talk, then think about the questions which follow
Was there anything in the talk which stood out to you?
How many of the 'stories' mentioned do you recognise? Do you know any others?
Do you think you have 'bought in' to any of them?
Do you agree with the problems pointed out in these stories?
Which story, or stories play a part in the way you see life? Have you deliberately chosen to live this way or has it 'just happened'?
Does the idea of a universal story which makes sense of the world and of all our lives, appeal to you? Why or why not?
Watch the video to the right, 'Identity'. How can this summary help you live a fully human life?
Part 2 of our journey looks at one such universal story, in the meantime, some of the links opposite may be of interest to you....
You are just beginning a journey, we hope a journey to a new, richer, fuller life.
All living things begin small but given time and the right conditions they will grow and eventually flourish.
Be patient with yourself as you work through this site, revisit parts as many times as you like and feel free to get in touch with the Christian communities mentioned on the Home page of this website.
