I didn't fit in at all growing up. I had a really hard time making friends and I'm an only child. It was hard to make friends at school. I have a ton of cousins but my cousins, when I was little, made fun of m a lot. I felt like the family didn't like me, the people at school didn't like me. So I guess it kind of left me alone a lot to explore what I like to do and made me very independent.
Now I'm self-employed and I work from home. I do social media. It kind of made me not to be afraid to be alone. And I think a lot of times I see people who are very scared to be alone and that holds them back.
When I was growing up I had a doll and his name was Adam. Actually my cousins bullied him just as much as me. Every time I would see my cousins they would tear off his arm. My mom tried so many times, she even had to contact the company, to try to get more pieces to put him together. I hold onto Adam, I'm sure he still is at my parents house. I'm sure! I had that doll forever. That's who I hung out with. It made me comfortable being alone because I was able to use my imagination and I kind of felt like I created my friends when I was little.
