Despite Everything, It's Still You

"Despite everything, it's still you." This is my favorite line from one of my favorite video games, Undertale. This quote means a lot to me, especially nowadays, as sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and cannot recognize the person staring back at me.


Over the past five years, I have been through so much. I finished college only to work in retail (a job I never wanted) in the middle of a pandemic. My dad died suddenly, I got together and broke up with my first boyfriend, found my spirituality, and now I'm starting Grad School in just a few weeks. It is quite the list, and it still makes my head spin. It would send anyone into a tizzy and slight identity crisis.


Despite everything I've been through over the past few years, I am still me. Because no matter what I go through and all the changes that will happen, who I am will never change. Even while I am still trying to figure out who that person is.


This can be said about all of us. You are you, and that will never change.
