    I've said it.
    I just didn't want to disappoint anyone, but I don't want to have to do this anymore.
    I quit.

    I don't know what I am.
    I just don't want labels.
    It only makes me stressed.

    I think they're called theists.
    So then, I'm a theist...???

    I've always been iffy about this sort of thing, even when I was little.
    Maybe I never was.
    I never liked anything about it.

    What did I do whenever we were at church?
    I always drew pictures of anime boys in my notebook.

    What do I do when we're reading the Bible?
    Zone out until it's my turn to read, and when it's time for discussion, I stare off and think about whatever.

    What do I do when it's time to pray?
    Awkwardly bow my head and peek around, thinking "this is weird."

    Maybe I never had it in me.

    I survived.
    I got super tense when my dad came.
    And this is a daily occurrence.

    “No one quite knows who or what they are.”
    --Solid Snake

    Many people find themselves searching for an identity, finding out what their role is in the world, how they are going to live their life, what they find important. In short: who they are. This search for identity is always an important theme in MGS, and especially in MGS2. Raiden’s identity has been shaped and molded by others, he has been manipulated and controlled, and now he has to find out for himself who he wants to be. ‘Who am I really?’ he wonders, after which Solid Snake responds with this quote. He goes on to remind Raiden that there is no such thing as absolute reality in this world, so you have to find your own truth, and choose your own life.

    I don't know who or what to trust anymore.
    Everyone has taken advantage of me and manipulated me.

    Yes.
    Sad that I can relate to Raiden for real, tho.
