Twins

I have twin cousins on both sides of my family. One set is two years older than me, and the other set is two years younger. I have always been able tell who is who even though both sets are identical. When I was a little girl I wanted a twin, I am the oldest and was the only girl for a long time. I loved spending weekends and vacations with the twins on my mother's side. As children we looked alike and would often dress in the same outfits to make people think we were triplets, it worked!

Now we're all adults and at some point I stopped wishing for a twin. I see both sets of twins having the exact same problems and exhibiting the same risky unhealthy behaviors. Life can be difficult when you feel like you aren't a unique individual.
