13 years old on CREATING AN IDENTITY

The 13 year old was asked as a homework assignment to create an identity for himself
to respond to blogs with his classmates and teachers!

My struggle is writing this blog. Not because I don’t like writing, not because I don’t like homework, but because I don’t like sharing about myself. Sometimes I don’t know enough about who I am to tell other people. I could never categorize myself because I am not like other people.

Other people make adjectives to describe how they are feeling, and we use these adjectives to describe how we are feeling and who we are. My feelings are not categorized in the way other peoples are. Neither am I. I have trouble talking about myself for that reason I have nothing to say that anyone can understand. Nobody can describe themselves using premade words.

Feelings and beings are so individual and complex you just cannot do it is just impossible. It is amazing that we live in a world where people are trying to be themselves without taking the time to learn who they are, and by just using a premade word.
