What It Feels Like To Be You

Is this a scary prompt?

It felt like a scary prompt when I first started working on this page last week. It was inspired by a difficult conversation, in which I found myself wondering what it felt like to be the other person. And then it occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve ever asked this exact question of myself before. Possibly because I wasn’t sure what sorts of answers would bubble to the surface.

Now that I’ve had time to think it through, I feel as if I’ve broken new ground in my own experience of the world and I have quite enjoyed unpacking the three words that came to mind in response — even though they were not easy words.

How about you? Have you ever thought about the words you’d use to describe the experience of being you? What would they be?
