But these are exactly the issues preventing her from knowing what she wants to be. When she has to avoid lawful and social aspects of herself, she has to avoid many of the things that she could become. Knowing your purpose has nothing to do with finding it, and everything to do with knowing how you're getting in the way. I think she has reached the limit of who she can be within her current constraints, and needs to expand herself beyond that before she can go further.
