Identity, Killing Mommy Memoir, Excerpt –
Though a dreamy, detached state was the norm for the girl from an early age (which protected her from the cruel blows of reality), repressed memories and images often made their way to the surface, triggering her to withdrawal further within herself.
It was her beloved books that took her through new journeys and epic experiences, in other spheres, while also highlighting riveting characters whom she could live through, and flourish.
When her adventures fell upon their last pages, she became the said character, whether beloved or diabolical, in thought and deed and continued living their story until she replaced it with a new identity.
The girl’s environment had not given her the nourishment needed to form her own identity; thus, it was commonplace for her to take on other’s personalities whether through books, television, or those in whom she came in contact.
I am in the process of publishing the sensitive details of my memoir.
