do not allow others to define your identity for you. do not allow them to write even a portion of it. they can be a mirror that shows *you* who you are, but they cannot tell you who you are. they will always, somehow, get it wrong. nothing & noone can write that part better than you. define *yourself* and believe in that. truly. you are unrepeatable, perfect, beautiful and so much closer to knowing that that you even know.
