Uncovering my true character

When I was growing up, I was a piano student and later a drama and singing student. As a young performer, I was also emotionally sensitive and would get caught up in the highs and lows of moods. For example, I’d sometimes quickly alternate between being happily excited and feeling depressed. This certainly gave credence to a stereotypical artist’s label of being “emotional.” At times I became so tied up in emotions that it was as if with each circumstance I faced, I was a different character. Though these feelings seemed sincere, they were confusing for me. I couldn’t be all these different characters at once, so which one was me? Was this a “personality crisis”?

Then began my first small steps of finding myself—my unique spiritual individuality. I found myself when I found God.
