  1. well said Nick. but i would always exercise caution when being told what others are saying about you. people are not always spot-on in their recollection LOL

    • Thanks Jason, I always look at things with a skeptical eye. This time, however, I believe the context of the conversation was more important than the actual subject. πŸ™‚

  2. 2B or not 2B. We just need to be ourselves and nothing more or less. “Labels” are just like book covers, don’t judge. Each one of us is our own person. That is what makes us unique.
    If a person does not like who you are, move on, its their loss, not yours.

    Enjoy your day!!!

    • Thanks Kali, I constantly work on that. I know who I am, and I am pleased with where I am in life.

      That being said, it can be tough to look in the mirror some days. πŸ˜‰

  3. I remind myself often that there are people that TOLERATE me and people who CELEBRATE me and that I need to focus on that second group as opposed to the first. As for me, I CELEBRATE you. I’ve called you my “rocky road” friend in my “vanilla” world and it’s true. You don’t fit into any one cookie cutter shape. You’re constantly changing, growing, and becoming Nick. And you challenge me to do that in my life, too. You challenge me to think outside the insulated box that I live in and to refuse to let the world around me cram me into one cookie cutter shape. Simply put? My world is better because you’re in it. I don’t know what label to put on it. In fact, I don’t think it needs a label at all. πŸ™‚

    • Sometimes I’m awesome wrapped up in humility. Others, I’m torture wrapped up in love. Either way, I’m me and that’s all I know how to be. Good, bad, or indifferent, I am who I am. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for being in my world, Miss Sarah.

  4. Labels can be shackles that restrain you or they could be the nicest compliment you ever receive. In general, my inner psychopath tends to just ignore the labels others have for me. Unless he writes them down to later spray paint on their headstone.

      • Could the labels we impose on ourselves be the most inaccurate? It is so hard to see ourselves and all our faults or positive attributes clearly.
