As a teenager,I felt I was always letting people down. I was rebellious1 out-side,but I wanted to be liked inside.
Once I left home to hitch-hike2 to California with my friend Penelope. The trip wasnt easy,and there were many times I didnt feel safe. One situation in particular kept me grateful to still be alive. When I returned home,I was different,not so outwardly sure of myself.
I was happy to be home. But then I noticed that Penelope,who was staying with us,was wearing my clothes. And my family seemed to like her better than me. I wondered if I would be missed if I werent there. I told my mom,and she explained that though Penelope was a lovely girl,no one could replace me. I pointed out,She is more patient and is neater than I have ever been. My mom said these were wonderful qualities,but I was the only person who could fill my role. She made me realize that even with my faults-and there were many-I was a loved member of the family who couldnt be replaced.
I became a searcher,wanting to find out who I was and what made me unique. My view of myself was changing. I wanted a solid base to start from. I started to resist3 pressure to act in ways that I didnt like any more,and I was delighted by who I really was. I came to feel much more sure that no one can ever take my place.
Each of us holds a unique place in the world. You are special,no matter what others say or what you may think. So forget about being replaced. You cant be.
每个人在这个世界上都占有一个独一无二的位置。无论别人说什么,你自己怎么想,你都是特别的。所以,不要担心自己会被取代,因为你永远是惟一的。 本文来自美文网
