Identity - the little lioness

Identity

Label label. Label Maker.

Who am I?

Where do I fit in?

Can I be the cute one. A rock chick. A naughty librarian.

Queer or quirky. Whit or whimsy.

They say part of BPD is the shaky sense of identity.

Not knowing who you are.

Or easily absorbing those of others.

Trying to sort out which values are real.

Which are mine. and which are merely borrowed for the time being.

Nurture. Independence. Are they conflicting? Because I come back to both.

Wanting to look after others but not wanting to need it myself.

That’s probably just fear.

Find the balance. Between accepting help when needed.

Accepting love, versus losing independence.

    I like the tag “head stuff”.

    What do the professionals say?
