"Murphy was an optimist!"
Who am I? September 17, 2009 6:41 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Deep Thoughts, Philosophy
Read some words last night reminding me that we are not defined by the labels applied to us. I am not "Doug" I am not a "juggler" I am not a "freelancer" I am not a "father" I am not a "liberal" I am not a "computer expert" I am not a "blogger" I am beyond the boundaries of these labels. Yes I am these things however I am not limited to these things.
Our human nature is to categorize and classify things. In doing so, we imprison people by binding them to preconceived notions. You say "Republican" and I instantly have a vision of "who you are" but this is wrong. A label does not make the person nor does the person have to be constrained to the limits of that label.
Who am I? I am everything. I am potential. Know me. Don’t label me.trackback
