In an essence, today a soon to be adult me, I have overcome my insecurities. I no longer see myself as “Edward’s sister,” but purely Denise. Every individual has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is how it is handled that truly defines oneself. As I matured into a young lady, I grew out of my brother’s shadow. My self worth is depends on my success and achievements, not just grades and academics. I do not need approval from relatives or teachers in order to be happy. Whose opinions matter the most is my own and ultimately, I create a journey to prosper.
After seeing Edward crying in shame, it made me realized Edward was not this perfect boy that everyone had hoped for. We both shared the same torment and insecurities. He did not feel he belonged in this world. His tears gave me the intuition to help him as his sister. I did not want Edward to feel worthless like I was because he deserved the best.
Edward indirectly taught me compassion. It may sound cliché, but everyone has suffered and has a story to tell. Although they are the most depressing memories, encountering these situations are the most inspirational moments in my life. No one is brought into this world to be ignored; my ambition is to truly help people, and prove them wrong: people do care.
