“Who Am I?” thats the question I consider to be the most difficult to answer yet the commonly asked.
For starters, I am Deciree Joy M. Dela Paz, 16 and I grew up in a not-so-common country of Yemen. Im someone who talks alot. I dont feel shy to approach people but that seriously takes all of my guts. I try my hardest to crack jokes but never prevail. Im a perfectionist and somewhat organized. Im easy-going and I enjoy my friends’ company. I love watching movies and American TV series. You’d find me with a book during the weekends. I like exercising but I seldom do that. Im a person with numerous goals and who looks forward for the future.
As for a more personal me, I feel pretty much unimportant. I also have the feeling of being left behind and unnoticed which causes me to just blotter out whatever I want to say to get attention. At times, I just say things without thinking twice that tends to get too offensive .Frankly, Im a very moody person. I act rude and mean to those who get on my nerves and I hate it when things dont go my way. Growing up, I didnt have a ‘someone’ who I can talk my heart out, so I keep my true feelings to myself most of the time. I dont like being pressured and forced to do things coz it makes me feel weak. Honestly, Im very appreciative and I always look at the best side of someone rather than their worst. Im sentimental and I always hold on to memories. Whenever Im with my close companions and family, I feel secure and comfortable; though at times it may seem like I don’t care, seeing happy and safe is all I want.
Lasty, I can say that there’s braveness in everyone, even me, coz somehow I’ve overcome the hardest trial that came my way and I was able to stay on feet no matter how hard life blew me down. Im beginning to step out of my shell and discover a whole lot more about myself.
