Who Are You?

What defines a person? Is it their career? Their hobbies? Their personality?

Many things tell people who we are, but often, we use our career to define ourselves. I’m an engineer, I’m a mechanic, and I’m a pizza delivery person. But is a career so important that it makes us who we are?

In my full time employment, I am a customer service representative for a printing company. It’s my job. It helps me pay the bills. But by no means do I believe that having that job defines who I am as a person. I believe many things define a person and trying to pinpoint all of them would be near impossible.

When I look at myself, I see many different aspects. Essentially, when it comes to this blog, I’m a writer. That is what I define myself as here. At home, I’m a dad with a family. When I’m with friends, I’m something else. And it just keeps on going.

We are who we are when we need to be it. No person should limit himself or herself to being one thing. It takes away from who you are as a person, and gives others a very shallow view of what makes you, you.

Never limit yourself to a field, description, or one word. We are all complicated creatures, and it is only appropriate that we portray ourselves that way.
