I am a student trying to learn to be an independent. I am independent in my mind, but financially, socially, and emotionally I am always dependent. I am searching my identity so that whenever someone ask who are you I can say proudly I am "....." Should I say I am my mother's daughter (or my father's daughter). I am not ashamed of being called my parent's daughter as they have done enough for me, but I want to have my own identity. i dont want to be known because of relation I have with them. I want to be me.
