Journal prompt, its not what you like but what your like thats important

so what am I like? Who am I?

I am a woman in my mid 30’s. I have a disability, I am blind. I am a lesbian, but I am also a girly girl. I live alone, with my dog, he is a guide dog, a lab retriever cross. I am a writer, I like to write poems, and I am hoping to get a book published some time this year. I am a singer. Singing is a passion of mine. I used to be in stage school, and now I take vocal coaching lessons. I have a mental illness. I have dissociative identity disorder, and complex ptsd. I struggle with anxiety as well. I am a sister, I have one sister. I am an aunt, and I love my niece and nephew to bits. I have been a student. Currently I am not studying, but that might be changing soon.

So tell me, who are you?

  1. This is a good way to think about who you are. I’m always unsure who I am, and it’s a struggle to figure it out. I know who I’m supposed to be. Anyway. I’m glad you know who you are. And your writing this has given me some food for thought. Xx

  2. It’s really good that you know who you are so well, Carol anne. As someone with Borderline Personality Disorder, I don’t feel I have a solid identity at all. I feel that I’m a mixture of my own insecurities and a dummy who molds herself to be ‘just right’ for each different person in my life. Some may call this ‘people pleasing’ but it’s not about that – it’s more a sense of desperately wanting to belong and to try to avoid the possibility of being abandoned which is my greatest fear. I’m a very complicated being but I’ve no doubt that in their hearts, many people feel the same way. After all, humans are incredibly complicated beings but I guess that’s what makes each of individual. Sorry, I’m waffling a bit … just thinking. Love Ellie xxx

    1. Hi Eli. I can say all that but sometimes it feels like just going to the motions you know? Like I’m saying things about myself but I’m not really feeling them. Do you get what I mean? X


  3. I am a woman who is 40 and I live with my cat, Miley, who means the world to me. I am happy to be a person who is independent and living on my own. I don’t want to be in a relationship, just friends is enough. I am profoundly deaf and although I wear hearing aids, they only help, it is not a magic cure as people expect. I still have to rely on technology to get me by.

    I have also suffered anxiety and depression in the past on and off as well as suffering it now. I have grown up with a parent who has a mental health condition, so this is all I know. But although I have my own personal experiences, does not mean I know everything and so I have been doing a Mental Health study course at home. (I have another two courses to carry on after this as done.)

    I hope to challenge myself further this year, as I plan to learn to drive.

    I like crochet, which is something new I have learnt, but unfortunately took a bak seat a bit while I have been doing my course.
