Michael Quoist - THE STRANGER THAT I WAS
Lord, today I ask you, once and for all, to rid me of my concern over what impression I make on other people.
Forgive me for being so preoccupied with what I seem to be,
with the effect I produce, with what others think and say of me.
Forgive me for wanting to imitate to the extent that I forget who I am,
for envying their talents so much that I neglect to develop my own.
Forgive me for the time I spend playing games with my "personality"
and for the time I don't spend in developing my character.
Now, let me forget about the stranger that I was so that I may find myself;
for I will never know my home unless I leave it,
and I will never find myself if I refuse to lose myself.
Lord, let me be open to my brothers, so that, through them,
you will be able to visit me as you friend.
For then I will be the person that your Love wants me to be,
your son, Father, and a brother to my brothers.
