It is definitely not queer if you are being asked – “Who are you?” You get this question a lot: in job interviews, meeting new friends… but have you thought of this question in more depth? Who are you, to be honest?

Who we are, is in any one moment, what we think of ourselves. Influenced by our occupation, interest, hobbies, core values, friends and families, and even how we see ourselves in relation to others, and etc. Some might even think that all the choices that you made in the past years defined you, or should I say, constraint you.

However, people change all the time. Don’t let the past drag you behind, or let others hinder your decision. Never be scared to follow your dreams, nor hide who you long to be. There are different opportunities for you to try, to explore every single day. It is always up to what you want to do, and to show the world the real you.

But still, it is always good to prepare a mini speech for self-introduction when someone asks you “Who are you?” – You just don’t have to define yourself, or let others define you. The best thing you can do, is simply be true to yourself.

【做最真實的自己】

當你被人問起「你是誰」,你一定不會覺得奇怪,因為你總遇上這樣的問題:工作面試時,遇見新朋友時等等…… 但是你曾深入思考過這個問題嗎?你究竟是誰呢?

「我是誰」是在某一時刻,我們對自己的印象。它會被許多因素影響,比如職業,興趣愛好,價值觀,朋友家人,甚至是自己與他人的關係等等。有人甚至認為,過去你做過的所有的選擇都可以用來定義你這個人,或者我應該說,限制了你。

然而,人們又時時刻刻都在改變。不要讓過去拖累你的腳步,也不要讓其他人妨礙你的決定。永遠不要害怕去追求你的夢想,也別隱藏你渴望成為的模樣。你總有許多不同的機會去嘗試,去探索每一天的可能性。你想做什麼,完完全全取決於你自己,包括向世界展示那個真實的你。

不過,當有人問起「你是誰」的時候,你最好還是準備好一個簡單的自我介紹。你不需要定義自己,也不需要被他人定義。你能做的最好的事情,就是做最真實的自己。
