The Human Aspect of Berthina

In my effort to please everyone's standard of culture, I felt I was disappearing slowly. Growing up I had a more traditional, religious, and strict household, than my surrounding environment. In my effort to fit in at home by trying to avoid sin, and doing the right thing my worthiness was lost to me. I exhausted myself in my efforts to uphold my double life, and no matter what I did I felt I didn’t fit in anywhere.
