Whenever I "take on the characteristics of people around me" -which I do all the time, I feel like I have taken a step back in my recovery. Why can't I just be me? Why do I feel pushed around in my friendships?
I guess there are positive things to being a cameleon. I mean, I can imitate any singer or actor, once I hear them. This makes people laugh. But really, who am I? Why do I have to turn into those around me? This doesn't help my low self-esteem problem at all!
Good thing I like music. Below, I have posted a new song by Pink, so raise your glass!
