It’s funny how we’re taught that the secret to life is knowing who we
really are. That once we look deep, spend years soul-searching and find out
who that person really is at the core of us, that the rest of our life will fall into

feeling of being incomplete, of missing something, of not being able to fit in
with society, of being seen as an other, would finally go away.
I always felt there were different people locked inside me and I kept
pinballing between them all, not knowing where I’d land.
But now I know the truth.
