A Stranger to Myself

"I feel like I don't even know myself. And if I don't know myself, how can anyone else ever know me?" Autumn has always felt alone, like an outcast. But when a girl comes into her life and reveals things about Autumn she never would have known otherwise, can Autumn learn to accept her differences she's so used to hating?

1. What If?

I always wondered what my life might be like if I was normal, if I was like everyone else. Because throughout all of my years on this Earth I've always felt out of place, different and unwanted. I've always tried so hard to hide my abnormalities but deep down I knew that they weren't going to go away. I was never truly going to be average like I so wanted.

 

People could tell, too. The other girls at school apparently had a sixth sense because they discovered just what I was insecure about at first glance, and have tormented me profusely for years and years. I feel alone. Always. In reality, sure, I may have one or two "friends", but they don't like me for me. They like me for the person that I try to be, for the person I feel like I have to be. They're not real.

 

I feel like I don't even know myself. And if I don't know myself, how can anyone else ever know me?

 

But then Carmen showed up. And she changed everything for me. She was the first person that knew me.
