I got caught in my
brain today. Who am I now
Different life to live
It’s strange how we change over time. We have experiences both good and bad. Do they change who we are or just our views of life?
Sometimes I feel like a totally different person now. My brain works differently. I see myself in terms of before and after. Personalities can change after brain injury. Then there’s the whole thing about actual changes in how the brain works. For example, sensory overload. That’s physical. Is hating change and being inflexible a personality change or trying to control for safety and function? Is being angry grieving?
It’s just strange to feel like I’m a stranger in my own skin. I guess it doesn’t matter why. It just is. But, I really don’t like who I am now.
