How can you find yourself?

It is true that life does not come with a treasure map to follow to discover abundance, success or happiness, nor do you have a URL to search Google for more information about you and your mission here, on Earth.

We can only take responsibility for our lives and even if we sometimes feel lost, seek to understand the meaning of experience and a suitable way for us to overcome this stage.

Nothing has a meaning in itself, predetermined or the same for everyone.

We choose whether to give the experience a meaning that will make us feel stronger or that will make us feel weak and abused.

Usually, people who have experienced this condition say after a while, “If I hadn’t felt so lost then, I wouldn’t have been able to become what I am today.”

Even if you have to continue your social life, work, husband / wife duties, mother / father, etc., try to spend as much time as possible with yourself.

Such advice may seem counterintuitive, but only in solitude you can find yourself.

I hope these quotes about finding yourself below will inspire you and help you in your journey towards oneself.

5 quotes about finding yourself

  1. “You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.” ― Mandy Hale

  1. “Life is painful and messed up. It gets complicated at the worst of times, and sometimes you have no idea where to go or what to do. Lots of times people just let themselves get lost, dropping into a wide open, huge abyss. But that’s why we have to keep trying. We have to push through all that hurts us, work past all our memories that are haunting us. Sometimes the things that hurt us are the things that make us strongest. A life without experience, in my opinion, is no life at all. And that’s why I tell everyone that, even when it hurts, never stop yourself from living.” ― Alysha Speer

  1. “You can run away from yourself so often, and so much, just because the broken pieces of you cut your feet too deeply if you stay around for too long. But then what if someone were to come along and pick up those pieces for you? Then you wouldn’t have to run away from yourself anymore. You could stop running. If someone sees you as something worth staying with— maybe you’ll stay with yourself, too.” ― C. JoyBell C.

I’ll take you there, you’d said.

And I could say that I agreed.” ― Lucy Christopher

Your truly happy people, which is to say, your people who truly like themselves, they don’t think about themselves very much. Your unhappy person resents it when you try to cheer him up, because that means he has to stop dwelling on himself and start paying attention to the universe. Unhappiness is the ultimate form of self-indulgence.” ― Tom Robbins

  6. “I will come back to you, I swear I will;

And you will know me still.

I shall be only a little taller

Than when I went.” ― Edna St. Vincent Millay

20 quotes about finding yourself

  1. “There’s something really cool about knowing that your destiny is SO big that you’re not meant to share it with anyone. At least not yet.” ― Mandy Hale
  2. “So they gave me love in the form of poison and tiny little pills, programming my emotions, teaching me how to feel. To act correct and talk correct and answer without knowing the question, because that, my dear, is how you get love. Yes that, dear youth, is how you’ll be loved. I tried to medicate my own little mind with chemicals and adrenaline, tasting sweeter every night, shaking louder every time. Sitting wide awake in bed until the world disappears, writing poetry to concentrate on something real while waiting for the love to arrive.

I’ve been looking for it night after night, waiting patiently for it to show up, maybe somewhere in between the state of awake and asleep, alive and not so alive, sober and not so sober.

(I lost track of the difference somewhere in between.)” ― Charlotte Eriksson

Everything came crashing down on me that I’d been holding in, and then I was just a mess. But I wasn’t suffering in silence anymore. I was suffering from the impenetrable sound of your voice on repeat in my head.” ― Cassandra Giovanni
  4. “And I realized that some things just don’t work that way. Life isn’t a fairy tail. And the person you fall in love with doesn’t always love you back. But that’s ok, because at the very least it makes you stronger. And brings you to a place where you can fall in love with yourself. And that to me is more important than finding someone that only makes you complete when they are around, It’s really about Finding the person that will teach you ALL the lessons you need to know …so that you feel complete all by yourself. ” ― Bethany Brookbank

I definitely do. I feel a kind of vertigo that makes me shake afterwards. I guess we all feel it when making a difficult-seeming choice, and sometimes you seriously don’t know what you want because you don’t know who you’re supposed to be, or who you want to be. Physics, my first and second families, my philosophy degree, had all failed to help me answer that question. The former has led me to wonder whether I am one of an infinite number of Slices in multiple universes. A quantum mess-up, which is someone who messes up in every one of those universes but in different ways.” ― Olivia Sudjic

You’ve got to sit down and remember where you left them at. You’ve got to quiet the noise and go back to those loops in time and cracks in space that you forgot about and you need to understand yourself in those moments, and embrace yourself.

For the first time, I accepted that I could not meet the expectations of others and make myself happy at the same time.

  4. “St Cuthbert was called to be a hermit on Lindis­farne. This was more than a thousand years ago. There were only small wooden huts there then, and the wind and the wild sea and everything that lived in the wild sea. Cuthbert went out there to the mon­astery, but the monastery was not far enough and he was called out further. He rowed to an empty island, where he ate onions and the eggs of seabirds and stood in the sea and prayed while sea otters played around his ankles. He lived there alone for years, but then he was called back. 

The King of Northumbria came to him with some churchmen, and they told him he had been elected Bishop of Lindisfarne and they asked him to come back and serve.

There’s a Victorian painting of the king and her mit. Cuthbert wears a dirty brown robe and has one calloused hand on a spade. The king is offering him a bishop’s crosier. Behind him, monks kneel on the sands and pray he will accept it. Behind them are the beached sailboats that brought them to the island. The air is filled with swallows. Cuthbert’s head is turned away from the king, he looks down at the ground and his left hand is held up in a gesture of refusal. But he didn’t refuse, in the end. He didn’t refuse the call. He went back.

We head out because the emptiness negates us. We leave the cities and we go to the wild high places to be dissolved and to be small. We live and die at once, the topsoil is washed away and the rock is exposed and it is not possible to play the games anymore. Now I am exposed to rock. Like Cuthbert, I have been washed clean. What do I see?” ― Paul Kingsnorth

  1. “At least he kept trying to express himself, his real self, as motley and inchoate for now as the outfit he was wearing.

  2. “You’ll find your way.” ― Rich Shapero
  3. “I am a world of uncertainties disguised as a girl.” ― Nicole Lyons
  1. “Sometimes you have to let go of a career you love, a beloved home, or a loved one. Take time to grieve a loss of this nature.

  2. “The purpose of a pilgrimage is about setting aside a long period of time in which the only focus is to be the matters of the soul. Many believe a pilgrimage is about going away but it isn’t; it is about coming home. Those who choose to go on pilgrimage have already ventured away from themselves; and now set out in a longing to journey back to who they are.

Many a time we believe we must go away from all that is familiar if we are to focus on our inner well-being because we feel it is the only way to escape all that drains and distracts us, allowing us to turn inward and tend to what ails us. Yet we do not need to go to the edges of the earth to learn who we are, only the edges of yourself.” ― L.M. Browning

  5. “The only way to learn who you are is to leave home.” ― Sana Krasikov
  6. “I am a lonely figure when I run the roads. People wonder how far I have come, how far I have to go. They see me alone and friendless on a journey that has no visible beginning or end. I appear isolated and vulnerable, a homeless creature. It is all they can do to keep from stopping the car and asking if they can take me wherever I’m going.

I know this because I feel it myself. When I see the runner I have much the same thoughts. No matter how often I run the roads myself, I am struck by how solitary my fellow runner appears. The sight of a runner at dusk or in inclement weather makes me glad to be safe and warm in my car and headed for home. And at those times, I wonder how I can go out there myself, how I can leave the comfort and warmth and that feeling of intimacy and belonging, to do this distracted thing.

But when finally I am there, I realise it is not comfort and warmth I am leaving, not intimacy and belonging I am giving up, but the loneliness that pursues me this day and every day. I know that the real loneliness, the real isolation, the real vulnerability, begins long before I put on my running shoes.”

― George Sheehan

  1. “We must seek out that which invigorates us, and engage it at all fronts. Art, music, literature, conversation, travel, nature—whatever it is that keeps the fire of our spirit bright—we must build our life around it; for, without our passions, the years ahead become a burden rather than a gift.” ― L.M. Browning
  2. “It’s not by accident that people talk of a state of confusion as not being able to see the wood for the trees, or of being out of the woods when some crisis is surmounted. It is a place of loss, confusion, terror and anger, a place where you can, like Dante, find yourself going down into Hell. But if it’s any comfort, the dark wood isn’t just that. It’s also a place of opportunity and adventure. It is the place in which fortunes can be reversed, hearts mended, hopes reborn.” ― Amanda Craig
  3. “But, despite everything, it was almost a pleasure to suffer those torments. I had crawled through life blindly and dully for so long, my heart had kept silent and had sat, impoverished, in a corner for so long, that even these self accusations, this horror, this whole ghastly emotion in my soul was welcome. After all, it was an emotion, flames were still rising, it showed that my heart was still alive! In a confused way, in the midst of misery I felt something like liberation and springtime.” ― Herman Hesse
  4. “As we travel great lengths in this world away from home, most of us come back with a clearer view on what home means. And most likely it isn’t so much about the place in itself, but more about the places and people that have made us feel AT home…” ― lauren klarfeld
  5. “Breaking your family’s heart was the price you paid for rescuing your own.” ― Sana Krasikov

However dim your path may seem, and however far you may wander from it…the important thing is that you learn from all of your mistakes along the way and never forget for one moment who you are, or what you are struggling to be.” ― Dave Roman
  10. “I’ve found that trying to be like everyone else, do what others do and follow others ‘guaranteed path’ to ‘so-called success’ never really works for me. I have found my best strategy is to authentically be me, listen within and follow it….and then to treat and connect with others – wherever I can – personally, personally and individually.” ― Rasheed Ogunlaru
  11. “Find someone to grow old with and you’ll never grow old. Find a cause to live for and you’ll never die” ― Tolu’ Akinyemi

  3. “Who am I, when all I’ve ever believed myself to be, is fading before my very eyes?

Am I still me, or just a shadow of what I used to be?

Was I just an illusion that lived only in my head?

Did I paint myself as something more than I really am?

And with all these changes in my life…

What will be left of the woman who dreamed her dreams?

When all the colors that she wrapped herself with… are slowly being stripped away…
