Identity

"Identity changes with every moment" _it is not something concrete and consistent. Identity is forever reconstructed.  It is said that your name has an influence on how people perceive you as an individual. But, in my opinion the name is just a signifier. Some of us were given names by our parents, guardians and adoptive parents before we were even born. And by that time your identity was still unknown. As you grow, your identity changes and so does your life's perspective.  So this is to say, you can't say you know a person by simply knowing their names, names are arbitrary!

"Knowing or not knowing"

it is said that the truth will always set you free.. In most cases though you find that discovering the truth is what holds you back or is it because some truths weigh lesser than others? Yes, it is good to always remain truthful and honest but some things are just better left unsaid... Yes, nothing stays hidden forever, yet it is so much better not knowing some truths... #justarandomthought
