Ever since I was around twelve years old (I'm sixteen now), I've felt the need to copy someone, to change my personality and appearance completely so I can be like them.
And it's not just one person, I go through phases of wanting to be like people. Anyone: famous people, people whose blogs I find on the Internet and like the look of, people in my college and even my close friends. I just end up getting the impression that they're far more interesting than me, so I have to copy them.
When it's somebody famous (for example, I once was obsessed with looking, acting and speaking like Emma Watson), I'll go on Google and save pictures of them in different outfits to my own Images folder on my computer. And I'll study a Facebook page of a person in my college and pass off their likes/dislikes/interests as my own.
I know it sounds like stalking, but you must understand that it isn't the person I'm obsessed with, it's the idea of having an entirely new personality to myself.
But it's messed me up so much because now I have no idea who the real me is, and I feel like an absolute fruitcake. Please tell me that there's someone out there that does this, or even better, USED to do this and figured out how to stop.
Please help me =/
