Identity Crisis #48
Sometimes I'd like to be nameless. Or have someone else's name. Just so I don't have to be myself for the day. Or the week. Whichever.
I was born Stephanie. But I call myself Zoe. I used to use it as my name all the time. Now its mostly my pen name and most of my close online friends call me Zoe. I used to hate my name - Stephanie. Now it doesn't make my head spin like it used to. I still like Zoe. I'm very fond of then name and still intend to use it.
I like the name Zoe. It strikes me as a strong but beautiful name. It is a Greek name, and it means life. Maybe should hyphenate my name. Zoe-Stephanie. Stephanie-Zoe. They both sound odd. Oh well. I used to make decisions so easily. Now, I don't even know what to call myself.
If I met someone they could call me either name. Both. Doesn't matter. As long as they understand my identity crisis.
