Identity is continuity

Time is passing
World is changing
People come & go
Everything is ephemeral & transient

But something unchanged

Something unchanged inside me
Something still continuing inside me

from yesterday, from a week ago, from a year ago, from decades ago.......

Friendships that still carry on
Relationships that still stay alive
Activities I still do
Things I still like

.......Simply put, the same emotions that I still have for someone, something & for myself

This sense of continuity is
what guarantees that I am still the same existence from the past

This sense of continuity is
what makes me "me" today
