Have you ever heard the question, “Who are you anyway?” Have you ever seen someone do something that stands out and hear another say, “Hey, who is that girl?” Is it just a name they’re asking for, or are they asking about something more? When someone asks, “Who are you anyway,” or, “Who is that guy,” they’re asking about the identity that justifies the actions.
It’s like when someone asks you, “Who do you think you are?” In other words, you must be someone special or important to have offended or interrupted them. These are all questions about identity. And when it comes to dealing with ourselves, the questions carry an even greater importance.
Who are you anyway? Where are you from? What do you do? What are you capable of? Do you have a direction or purpose in life? All these questions have to do with identifying the real you.
If we can better understand our place, our potential, and our purpose, we’ll have a better understanding of who we are. Life is lived in a place (community, relationships, job, location, etc), and we always have a potential within that place, and these together help to reveal our purpose.
This may sound a little deep but it’s not. It’s actually simple, but it’s also powerful, and it can have a significant effect on your life right now.
