identity crisis | he said

Identity crisis. Who am I? Am I a husband? A father? A son? A man? All of them? Can I be all of them… wholly all of them? I know as a Gemini, I have at least 2 thoughts on EVERYTHING, and that may be a contributing factor to the multitude of voices in my head. It gets busy in this noggin’.

Then the external voices get added. My wife’s. My children’s. My parents. My in-laws. My friends. The writings from numerous religious scriptures I read (from different religions). All of them asking of me to do things, or telling me what I should do.  Who am I? Am I me? Am I them? Am I we?

I’ve felt a need to figure this out. In a house with so many ‘voices’ and ‘demands’ it’s been difficult to find the time… or quiet. I am a husband. A father. A business owner. An artist. A playmate. A son. A caregiver. But most of all right now: I am confused.
