Hey! So… you want to know about me, huh? Well, I’ll start off with the surface level stuff and we’ll work our way down. My name is Lucy and I’m a 16 year old from New York. If you want to get my attention, just talk to me about either music, self improvement, spirituality, surfing, or my pet sugar glider.
Why did I start this blog, you ask? Well, my whole life I have struggled with conforming to the expectations that other people place on me. I would let other people control MY life. This drove me to many dark places (which I discuss more in detail over in my blog, hey, you should check it out) where I questioned my identity, my beliefs, and every decision I have ever made. It was by going through those dark places that I realized: I have become a mirage of other people’s expectations, other people’s beliefs, and other people’s desires. Once I had this epiphany, I set out to shape my life exactly how I wanted it to be. Not my parents, not my friends, not the rest of society, but ME. Since then, my life has completely metamorphosed into something that past Lucy could have never imagined.
I also realized that I am not the only one who has struggled with this. Countless people unknowingly base every decision they make on the opinions and standards of people around them. You could be one of them. But, don’t worry, I am here to help you pull out the REAL you. The you that is buried underneath all these societal standards and internalized belief systems. What do YOU want to do? Who do YOU want to be? I can’t provide you with the answers to these questions, but I can help guide you. Join me on this journey. You won’t regret it.
