My pride stood in the way for years which pushed me to build a self-conceived identity that constantly fell short. If I conceive this identity through my own understanding it is as if I am saying I am God. This is clearly not true because I can look at everything around me knowing I did not create it. I can look at my ideations and see how they put me in harms way, brought fear, and restricted me. This is why I choose to seek a belief system in something greater than me. As I stayed honest, open-minded, and willing I decided where i would ground my belief. My hope in finding my identity was found in something WAY bigger than me. This gave me a firm foundation to stand on which offered principles to live by. This is the reason I am who I am today. A child of God.
