Identity Question

Identity Question
A couple of nights ago I realized that I'm a dancer and a cheerleader and an athlete. But could I be a girly girl and a tomboy at the same time? Which should I be?

Reply from the Highlights Editors
It's wonderful that you can do so many things. There is an expression that says that there is a time and a place for everything. In your case that means there will be times when you feel like acting or dressing in a very feminine way, and there will be other times when you feel like being a tomboy. Both of these traits are part of you. Even when you are showing one side of your personality, the other will still be there. You don't have to choose which one you should be.

Best wishes,
