April 20, 2015 by


What do you think when you look in the mirror, my precious sister? I am an identical twin. I know the pain of being CONSTANTLY compared to someone else in every single way. Other people compared us all day long every day. And we compared ourselves, too. You never want to be the ugly twin, […]
