There’s this side of me I call myself. (He’s/She’s) perfect. (He’s/She’s) (insert adjectives that describe you ex: beautiful, talented, artistic, smart, passionate). I respect myself...or at least I did before I realized I was doing things just to fit in. This was an ugly side of myself that I didn’t even recognize. I started saying things, doing things, that weren’t really me- just to fit in. But in high school, you start to realize that just one bad decision when you are young could change the rest of your life. This is the time when you either define yourself, or let others define you. You quickly learn that there are only two ways to go: you can hide in the dark with everyone else, or you can decide to be the light.
