This is a question that I have often posed to myself. It’s difficult for me to state who exactly I think i am. I can tell you who I want to be. I want to be an empathic and understanding member of the human race, who does not just think of herself, and I want to be the kind of woman who will always be there for her friends and family.
Growing up, I would always get lost in the world of my television shows. I spent countless hours laying in my bed absorbing everything i could from them. For so many years, I thought I wanted to be the girls/women that i saw in these shows. I loved everything about them. Their clothes, hair, attitude, etc. One day the illusion of it all hit me. These women weren’t real. Why should I want to be someone who isn’t real? This is when i started looking at the real women in my life, and I started to want to be more like them. I have some pretty amazing women in my life. I have a brilliant stepmother, who can always make me laugh. I have an amazing and passionate older sister, who always thinks of others instead of herself, and my mother is probably the strongest person I know. She has worked so hard and sacrificed so much for me, and would gladly do so over and over. So, who do I think I am? I’d like to think that I am a combination of these three pretty incredible women.
