In 200 words or less state why you are here.

Did you ever feel like you were missing out? Did you ever feel like you didn't belong? I used to feel like that. Big time. I thought that by changing the way I looked and dressed, I could plug all the gaps in my life. I wanted to be apart of something. Anything. I didn't care what. I didn't care how. I thought that I could buy a style. A style to change me. Create a new me. Make me someone else. It was only when I relized how wrong I was, that Isuddenly saw the person I wanted to be looking right back at me. Now for the first time in my life I can see what is beautiful and what's really important. And it's all around. So close, I just have to reach out and it's there. I've found my voice. Show me how to use it.

The questions you asked in this compact piece hit me hard like a tightly balled fist.

Some writers feel they need a lot of words to make an impact. In this essay, you did not. I like it.

Wow, that kinda made me sad, because my whole life that's all I've done is changed to try to make everything seem okay... Well, I'm glad you found something else. But don't let the happiness go. Shine bright no matter how upset you are. In your bio it says your depressed. I think you should go back and read your own essay. :)

I know how you feel. Being yourself, no matter how many times its said, really is the way to go.
