From an extreme, nonconforming, extroverted drama queen

I have this really annoying ability to quickly label myself. Extrovert, drama queen, extremist, nonconformist. It has really been a downfall of mine for some time now. Maybe it's because I'm still unsure of who I am a lot of the time. Once I realize something about myself, I take it to the highest level and label myself completely with that attribute. I feel like I have to continue to be whatever fits that label. Maybe I am an extrovert. Maybe I am an extremist (whatever that means). But instead of clinging to those titles, I think I should just be who I am. Live out of who I am.

True statement, the only label that's really important is that you're God's child.

I used to say that I didn't care what others thought of me. But then I realized I wanted them to know (or think) that I didn't care what they think; and therefore I really did.

Good thoughts, Amber.

PS I'm going to Japan in late December if all goes as planned. Uh huh.
