The topic for BEC challenge for this week is quite hard. This is related to my alter ego. I have never thought to myself that I have alter ego. Somehow I always think that alter ego is like spiderman, sailormoon, superman, catwoman, and another superheros figure. They change into a different person after changing costume.
For example, Sailormoon, my favorite superhero figure when I was a kid. Sailormoon is a very powerful superhero that has a moon power to fight the crime and powerful evil in earth. She has her charm of being the leader of all the sailors. Moreover she is a pretty and the prettiest princess!!! But in her daily life, she is just a childish Usagi who always has bad score at school and can not do any homework properly. She is not popular also. She is categorized as the average-look girl.
This example got through me and made me thinking even harder. Do I have even a single alter ego? And maybe the answer is yes.
In my daily life I’m just an ordinary woman who never shows my ability in speaking. I am shy and introvert. But I might change into a different person while I am on stage. When I was given a task to be MC, I could show myself differently. I became a confident person who knew how to speak fluently. My shyness and introvert attitude also could not be seen through my writing. Some people might not think that I was introvert through my writing.
But to me those are ‘bad’ attitude. I want to change them into who I am ‘on stage’. The attitude ‘on stage’ I consider as ‘good’ attitude. Well in my opinion, I do not want to have an alter ego anymore. I do not say that alter ego is bad. But, my ordinary attitude seems bad. I just want to be me with a good attitude. It does not mean that being good is easy. But I am progressing. We are progressing to be a better person.
So, how about you. Do you have an alter-ego?
