Authenticity

Why our identities are BS

Why our identities are BS

Sometimes I feel like I’m either bossy or awkwardly quiet, there’s nothing in between. I often come out of conversations wondering whether I came on too strong.

I spent the first 12 years of my life being a bossy older sister (I take full credit for my brothers’ intelligence and athleticism), and the years after that I figured I should tone it down a notch for fear of offending anyone. Hence the awkward quietness.
