Today my youngest tells me why she likes a certain friend. She says, “I just feel like myself when I’m with her.”
Yes, that’s good. That’s so very good.
I recall the times I’ve used the phrase, “I just feel like myself.”
I said it after I met my husband.
I said it after I taught a college class for the first time.
I said it after I started blogging and writing novels.
Maybe one of the ways I’m directed into life-giving relationships and activities is that they just feel like me. And if they don’t, maybe that’s a sign to move on to those things that make me feel like myself.
Are you with people and doing things that make you feel most like yourself?
