    I've Never Been Myself, Its Always Been About Being Someone Else

    Okay well here goes, I've never posted anything online like this before... I'm a 23 year old guy and I feel like I don't know who I am. When I was younger in elementary school I always wanted to be heard and pretty much just be heard, maybe it was because I was the younger son in...

    Who Do I See In the Mirror?

    When I look in the mirror I see a little girl who always wanted her Daddy's approval and acceptance. I see a teenager who was so overly responsible that her friends told her she was no fun. I see a young adult who struggled to decide what to do with her life (and never decided...

    Hidden Behind Endless Masks

    I feel like my whole life I have been trying to find out who i am and all I have is a bunch of masks to hide behind and a sea of lies that I drown in. I have been using masks for so long that I don't know how to live without them. I am afraid of what people may say or think even...

    It's Pretty Basic Really

    A conscious ape, that unfortunately needs to make decisions generated from a modern brain in a stoneage skull. It all unfolds, rather poorly on the whole, from there. Be grateful, think of the worst place you can imagine – and then make a coffee.

    Hardest Question To Answer

    I can't work out who I am. I've tried, but everything I think I am seems to be defined by other people and that doesn't seem like the right way to know myself. One part of me is a mum of two children who have autism. One part of me is the fiancée of a man with mental...

    Who I Am

    There's never been a real me, I don't recognize the person I was and I likely won't recognize who I am now. That's the price we pay to grow. Ask someone who they are, they'll tell you some absurd line like "I am who I am" which translates directly to "nothing" or they'll spot...

    My first answer would probably be my name.

    But, my name does not describe who I am on the inside. I could then give the title of my profession. But that is what I do. I could then tell you I am a sister and a daughter. But those are my relationships. I ask again, who am I? I could describe myself as an extrovert and...
