The Journey to Find Who I Really Am

At first, I thought I was a mix of my sisters.


They were complete opposites:

One was cautious, one was reckless.

One did well in school, the other struggled.

One was popular, the other had few friends.


I was told many times:

You have the good traits of both!

You do amazing in school,

You are not too cautious, not too reckless.


What they didn't see were the problems that I faced:

I had no real friends.

I couldn't trust anyone.

I didn't know who I was.


Eventually, I realized they were all wrong:

I didn't like math; I liked art.

I didn't want to be like my sisters; I wanted to surpass them both.

I didn't want to be perfect; I wanted to be my own unique person.


Now, I know that I have always been completely different than my sisters.
