Instead of a movie, story or TV show, I will go with a video game. Zelda, Ocarina of time.
I identified with Link because he was the outcast of the Kokiri forest. He strives to be strong and go through an epic journey to find the triforce before Ganondorf does.
Growing up, I didn't feel like I really fit in. I felt unsafe, and therefore a need to be strong. I don't really see how I need to rescue my "Princess Zelda" in my life, nor do I really see any particular epic journey or some ominous super evil like Ganondorf.
I guess I am still unconscious. Gross.
