BE YOURSELF, EVERYONE ELSE IS ALREADY TAKEN I realised that being authentic, being myself and not trying to conform to society&039;s or other people&039;s standards also includes not trying to be the daughter my mother expects me to be or the sister my sister expects me to be. A while ago I posted about putting to bed my expectations of my sister. And how I secretly wish to be close to her. I realise what I&039;ve been subconsciously doing is trying to behave in a way that is more acceptable to her, in hopes that I "become" the sister she hopes that I am. I get stressed and caught up in this desire of acceptance and closeness that I become defensive and resentful. And hyper vigilant. I caught my "dagger eyes" in my her wedding video! So this is how I look like??? When I&039;m around my family of origin? Gee… I look like I want to kill someone! I&039;m learning that I am who I am, and should not try to be someone else. People either accept me or they don&039;t. Family included. • family bemyself unique iamunique truetomyself iamwhoiam mentalhealth metalhealthawareness recovery
