How do you define yourself?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Till Human Voices Wake Us... : One Thread
What labels and words do you use to define who you are? Or do you? I know a lot of people resent the use of labels, while other people (like me, apparently) get defensive when their labels are questioned, when their view of themselves is threatened by an outside source.
There are a lot of labels I give myself, and not all of them are things I would post publicly, I'll admit. Some of mine sound like negative things (fat, mentally ill, bitchy), but really aren't. They're badges of the things I've gone through, the things I've survived, and the things that make me unique.
C'mon, show us your label!
