    Two People In One?

    I'm so confused about myself. I feel as though I have two sides of me, & this really confuses me about my identity. Sometimes I can be a strong-willed, non self-conscious, directly honest, hard-shelled person, saying whatever's on my mind & being somewhat mean, cold, or proud...

    Who Am I?

    I never really fit in much. When I am with my friends I feel like I am a broken mirror. I reflect what they do, but not quite right. They all know who they are...and they are firm in their beliefs. I feel like I don't know who I am, what I like, not even what I'm good at! It's...

    Most definitely. Sometimes I'm up sometimes

    I'm down sometimes I'm completely isolated sometimes all I want is to be surrounded by my friends and family, the only thing I know for sure is that I'm more unpredictable then English weather.
