Almost FB'ed this but my kids are on there.

I tried to be a hippie but I wasn't into it. I tried to be punk but I wasn't into it. I tried to be goth but I wasn't into it. I tried to be a hippie again but I still wasn't into it. I tried to be spiritual but I wasn't into it. I tried to be a suburban housewife but I wasn't into it. I tried mild BDSM but I wasn't into it. I tried monogamy but I wasn't into it. I tried polyamory but I wasn't into it. I tried being medicated for mental illness but I wasn't into it.

Each of the things I've tried to be, I tried because it sounded "right" or fun or comforting or had a built-in peer group (or any and all combinations thereof). Each of the things I've tried to be, I committed to at the time, and was sincere.

Everything I've tried to be has felt like acting.
