The Waiting Game (via The Water Witch’s Daughter)

This post so eloquently expresses so many of my own thoughts and feelings…I just had to share. It seems for some that it is so effortless to “find one’s self” or be comfortable in one’s “own skin” and for others (like myself) it is a constant struggle. Some just seem to “fit in” immediately and others never quite do…and often decide that they really don’t want to anyway…
