"Finding yourself" is not really how it works. You aren't a ten-dollar bill in last winter's coat pocket. You are also not lost. Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people's opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. "Finding yourself" is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you. - Emily McDowell
@Lexi realizing that you locked and buried your heart in a dungeon and that you have the power to find and free it is precisely a kind of finding.
Not all metaphors work for all people. Not everybody likes sports.
another way to put this:
the buddha nature exists within us all
