So true is this quote about understanding yourself. It is indeed a difficult phase to go through, but there is and always will be a way forward. If you don't believe in positivity, there's likely to be a great struggle in finding who you truly are. However, if you are someone who strives for the best and nothing less, you will soon find who you really are; who you are supposed to be and why you are on the path you are currently walking cautiously.
Try not to let negativity or distaste discourage you from reaching your goals in life, for they are one of the most important factors of it. If you are trying in vain to figure yourself out, allow a little time to reflect. Take it slow, take it easy and take it carefully. You don't want to rush into anything only to find out you would have been better off toning it down. It is always hard trying to understand yourself, more so than it is when those around don't seem to understand. When others don't understand you, it's heavy on the heart, but when you can't seem to understand yourself, it's a breaking of that heart. Be patient and it will come to you; you'll find yourself again.
