Ambi = Ethnically Ambiguous

Ambi-Narcissism: Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve seen January 21, 2009

It’s true. No one understands what it’s like to be different.

Nobody Knows

Ambi- Narcissim is a subset of a traditional “persecution complex”  experienced by a certain Ambi who endured much race-based taunting and harassment while growing up.  Although this phase of her life is over, the scars of past ridicule remained  along with the belief that NOBODY could possibly understand her the depths of her isolation.

Nobody knows-

Except for maybe Mello…

AmbiJawn: “Girl, You Just don’t know- I was the ONLY mixed girl in school”

Mello: Girl I’m from LA, being Non-Mixed was a novelty…lol.

Or perhaps Angelica C., Uncover-Ambi

AmbiJAwn: People love my hair now, but they made fun of it everyday in 5th grade 😦

Angelica: My hair might be straight now, but as a child it was curlier than yours- I had the NAPPIEST HAIR IN THE STATE OF INDIANA.  (OK I’m exaggerating here ‘Gels didn’t use the word “nappy”, but she assures me- that’s what she meant!)

Maaaaaaaaybe Kermit (you know, the Frog):

It's not easy being green.

It's not easy being green.

((Probably YOU if You’re Human))

(((Your cousin JuneBug from NOLA.)))

But nobody else!

Hopefully you are getting the picture by now.  As a child I felt like NOBODY could possibly understand me, or my experiences.  As I continue to grow, I’ve learned that people are more the same than we are different.  Change the face and the name, on the inside we are all the same.

MJ, take us to the bridge:
