One's Lost Self

“At the innermost core of all loneliness is a deep and powerful yearning for union with one's lost self.”- Brendan Francis
So many people compromise their behavior in order to fit in with those around them. If they do it often enough they start to believe they are someone else. They become a mirror to others, reflecting their ideas and thoughts and feelings. Something important is lost within the compromise and in moments of loneliness they are being pushed to remember what that is.
