look at me, doodling my dumb feelings again
I get really annoyed when people say that being confused about my identity is ‘special snowflake-y’ and that I’m just trying to make myself different. I don’t think these people have considered how incredibly difficult it is to not know what category you fit into, especially in a world that expects everyone to fit neatly into these little boxes. I don’t know who I should date, which dorm I should live in, what pronouns I should be called by, which sports team I should play on, or even which bathroom to use. I don’t feel like I really fit in the group I was ‘born into’ - and yet the other group doesn’t quite fit either.
Basically, it sucks, and I would have to be completely crazy to actually choose to feel this way.
