All My Life…

“All my life I’ve felt like an impostor, a fake, etc…  I never considered it was because the real me was squished out of me by others. I thought it was me and kept trying harder!  Continual invalidation causes us to try so hard to be what the other person wants that we lose ourselves often without even a glimmer of the real self left.” – Darlene Ouimet
