What aspect or description defines you?

I define me. I define reality. At least, I define my own reality. If you want to perviece it as your reality, that is entirely up to you.

But overall, goddamnit, I FUCKING DEFINE MYSELF! most people don't understand this.

Au contraire Fyre - I understand you PERFEECTLY. And I agree wholeheartedly.

Yep, that should be true, and for your own perception this is the case, but you can't help but be defined by other people too. When i was a student. I was still me, but i was a student. If i went to prison i would still be me but i would be seen by others as a criminal. You are defined by your circumstances, your upbringing, your sex your accent, your looks etc. These make you react to things differently. If someone does not like the look of me and treats me with comtempt i will react in a certain way which will define how that persons thinks of me. I don't think its all that simple i am afraid.
