An Open Letter To My Extended Family


Dear both sides of my family,

I realize that I am that weird, quirky, sometimes crazy cousin, or niece. That even on the darkest days I am that bright light, but also on those brightest of days I am the dark moon. Which one you will get of me, you will just have to wait and see. I try so hard to appear normal to you, yet maintaining my quirkiness to my fellow mentally ill friends. I just need complacency somewhere. Somewhere where I fit in, just right. Somewhere where I can have both qualities equally bouncing around. I realize I don’t fit in quite anywhere with any of you, and I’m not ok with that. My yearn for acceptance has been a life long journey which has led me nowhere so far. To find a place in society that fits me just right is definitely a priority of mine. Probably a top priority. All I wish is to be accepted by you, and loved, and not have my sanity questioned. My wish is, you will take my quirky bits, my eccentricity, and help lead me to path where my mind can most flourish.

With love,

Lindsay
