I can't stand saying my name

by Celeste
(California)

I can't stand saying my name. I was different for kids at school but my family (mom and step-father) seemed to have a problem with it too, because they made fun of me. My name is not common, and my last name is my fathers(explains why my family made fun of me for being one of "them"). After my divorce, I decided to keep my ex's last name, but know I feel like an impostor. I also have a hard time with peoples names (remembering, saying them), I think that is because i know the weight that a name carries. so anxious as I let out this secret.
