There are only 3 pages left in this chapter!! It seems like I just started Chapter 7, but one, I didn't, and two, I'm purposefully making chapters more like 35 pages instead of 50 like....CHAPTER 5, oh yes.
Anyway. Have you all ever felt like Martin does in this page? Like you have two (or more) different selves, one of which is hidden? And sometimes you're not sure which you is "real"?
I certainly have. Not so much anymore, but once in a while. In other parts of my life, though, it was an immense struggle. When I was a kid I used to belt out Christina Aguilera's "Reflection" with all my heart and soul. Even at 8 years old.
If you're struggling with this, know you can make it through! The "solution" is different for everyone, and evades advice-giving. It's a personal journey that sometimes feels utterly hopeless, but there's hope and there's help out there for all of us.
