Today’s Prompt: Me, or Who am I?
It’s the most important question, isn’t it? Some of us never really answer it, while for others, the answer changes as we grow and live.

“One thing that I have learned is that I don't think we figure out who we are all at once. I think it happens over a long period of time, piece by piece, you know? Okay, take me for instance. A couple of years ago, I get close with your dad, and I found a piece of myself in that. I meet your aunt and I found another piece of myself. Honey, I think that's sort of how it works you know? We go through life slowly but surely collecting these little pieces of ourselves that we can't really live without until we eventually have enough of them to feel whole.” -Kevin Pearson, This Is Us
Our identity is the core of who we are and how we see the world. It colours everything. And it isn’t simple. Every one of us has multiple intersecting facets of who we are. Family relationships, religion, career, art, sexuality—even what kind of pet you prefer—lends shades of meaning to the mosaic of you.
So, who are you?
