I am ME

When I was in middle school, I joined this group called sister hood. I don’t know why I joined it but I did, and they had us recite this poem before each session….. I think it means more to me now than it did back in the seventh grade.

by Virginia Satir

Virginia came to write this poem when she was working with an angry fifteen-year-old girl
who had a lot of questions about herself and what life meant.

I am me.

In all the world, there is no one exactly like me.

There are persons who have some parts like me,

but no one adds up exactly like me.

Therefore, everything that comes out of me

is authentically mine because I alone choose it.

I own everything about me

my body including everything it does;

my mind including all its thoughts and ideas;

my eyes including the images of all they behold;

my feelings whatever they may be…







my mouth and all the words that come out of it


sweet or rough,

correct or incorrect;

my voice loud or soft.

And 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 doing so I can love me and be friendly with me in all parts.

I can then make it possible for all of me to work in my best interests.

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 me.

This is authentic and represents where I am in that moment in time.

When I review later how I looked and sounded, what I said and did, and how I
thought and felt, some parts may turn out to be unfitting.

I can discard that which is unfitting, and keep that which proved fitting,

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,

and 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.


Talk about ambition, inspiration and everything else in between…. I was in the City today to volunteer with the IDSA group for ICFF. This is my second time going and all i can say is that i was inspired. It makes me so excited to really get out into my feild and do the hands on work that peopel will eventually want to buy. My old university was there, Montclair State and I have to shout them out because they are truely moving forward! They were able to present their own work as exhibitors. I as a student was truely impressed. I was told that they mad many many contacts! I plan to keep intouch with them as well!
