I am Me
by Virginia Satir

I am me
In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me
Everything that comes out of me is authentically me
Because I alone chose it –

I own everything about me
My body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions,
Whether they be to others or to myself –

I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears –

I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes

Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me – by so doing
I can love me and be friendly with me in all my parts –

I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other
Aspects that I do not know – but as long as I am
Friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously
And hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles
And for ways to find out more about me –

However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever
I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically
Me – If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought
And felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is
Unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that
Which I discarded – I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do

I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be
Productive to make sense and order out of the world of
People and things outside of me – I own me, and
therefore I can engineer me – I am me and
I AM OKAY

Some Inspirational Quote by Virginia Satir


Life is not what it's supposed to be.
It's what it is. The way you cope with it
is what makes the difference.


We need 4 hugs a day for survival.
We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance.
We need 12 hugs a day for growth.


We must not allow
other people's limited perceptions to define us.


We can learn something new anytime we believe we can.
