    I'm Becoming Who I Want to Be, But I'm Not Quite There Yet.

    A while back (yeah, it was really only a couple of weeks ago), I think I had an epiphany. The family got together, and I was always the outcast. The one who just sat there with no one to talk to. My whole life I've been the girl who wasn't good enough; the girl who had few...

    And Who Am I, Really

    How do I know who I really am? Is it who I really want to be? is it who others think I am? Is it who I think I am? I think no-one knows who they really are. But I hope for a life that includes me in it.
