Sometimes, when I look in the mirror, I see the person I was, not who I presently am. Last year, I was pretty much the same person, but also very different. Last year, my smile was big, because it was fake. I wanted to be likeable, make friends, please others. I was lonely and adjusting to a completely different life. Today, I am real. I have bad days, but don't we all. When others like me, that's great, but it doesn't define me any more. I have learned to just be myself. I smile everyday, but it's not as wide. It's not forced, it's real. I feel more true to myself than ever.
