Self-reminders: You're not a label, you are GREY!
You’re not just introverted or extroverted,
you’re not just female or male,
you’re not just curious or afraid.
you’re not just beautiful or just ugly
You’re not just good or just evil.
You’re a sum of paradoxes that can’t go apart, wrestling inside you and letting you choose which side would win in what particular event at what particular rate. So be wise.
You’re a crooked line with rates going up and down, left and right and the day you try to keep it in a straight line is the day you’ll break yourself.
If you let it be it won’t tear you apart, it will tear you together.
(There’s always hope in a pessimist’s heart and fear in the optimistic’s eyes.)
You are not a label, you can’t be categorised.
Society only labels you because society needs control over everything because society is afraid.
So you’re not just black or just white,
You’re grey. In the best possible way.
And the day you’ll learn to find peace with that and with not being in utter control of everything will be the day you taste what freedom feels like. Paradoxically.
