I honestly don't think there was one person I wanted to be like in high school. A lot was going on in those days, and most of it was hard to deal with.
Now that I think of it though, I most wanted to be like me.
When I was young I was terribly shy. Scared to talk to people. I had a huge fear of being disliked, and failure, to the point that I had panic attacks over my grades and meeting new people. A lot of my anxiety came from home and the expectations there. Mostly though, it was because I expected so much of myself.
I longed to be let out of my cage. To say the things I thought without censoring them. I was tired of always being nice.
I hid within myself, and only really started to open up my senior year some. Thanks to drama club, and the best drama teacher a girl could ever ask for.
Sometimes even now I struggle with that desire to be me without holding back. I'm better, but that fear still lingers.
