The History Term Paper

Did you fans actually think I wrote a Term Paper on the Ultimate Warrior? LOL! Can you just imagine? 😳😬 Maybe if it was a biography or something but um… no. This story arose from another “flashback” of mine more suited for next year. It concerns Wrestlemania VI so 2020 will mark its 30th anniversary. That’s also when I graduated high school. I probably wouldn’t let it out of my memory bank but needed some funny back after these last few weeks. Not gonna wait ’til next year after all!

For my U.S. History class, our term paper near the end of senior year was on the Great Depression. We had weeks of course to stay on track with prep work. The whole nine yards really. Finding sources, having a Table of Contents, notecards, bibliographies, and all that for a timeline. The teacher gave us more specific topics to help as a guide. Do you think I picked from that list? Nope, not at all.

I wanted to be even more specific with how the Great Depression affected family life. The economy or government stuff didn’t interest me like the personal connections did. Makes sense to me now. I asked the teacher about this and she agreed to my idea but advised on lack of references. This didn’t stop me! Remember– no true internet then so you had to rely on books, magazines, (or “periodicals,”) and the good old fashioned Microfiche machine. Remember that? You could access newspapers so YES even in 1990 that still existed for research.

How is this connected to Warrior? Well, here comes his part in all this. One night I ventured out to the library. Warrior would love that. It was time for some serious work without the distractions of home. This was just around the time after WMVI so distractions in yet another ultimate way! Despite that, the library was upon me. I remember vividly going downstairs to the basement where all the reference areas were.

After a bit of time, I needed to find some “periodicals” and that back space was huge! I actually can’t remember the details (I know, right?) but for some reason ended up in the “W” section. I really was back there for my story– no joke! Guess what I saw? You’re looking at it up above. That was not the latest issue of the WWF magazine but the Ultimate Warrior just happened to be in the front. He did appear on two covers in 1990, June and Nov. but I was there in April. My report got side-tracked as I picked up the magazine and sat on the floor reading it! Why didn’t I just check it out with all my other materials? Couldn’t do that…

I did finally find what was needed for my report but ended up arriving home a little later than expected. Guess that “research” took longer– HA-HA! This goes along with my newer catchphrase of “I Can’t Go Anywhere.” Even back then. Do any of you remember my post on “Stand Up, Stand Out, Deliver?” The teacher who gave me a bad grade on a report was this experience.

I worked my A_ _ off on that report and got too many corrections from her without merit. She did raise my grade and gave me 3 out of 5 points proved. I stood up and THAT’S being a warrior. The history part he would also love. I always did the work and continue doing the work everyday. I hope you do too. That report was kept for a bit but then I grew tired of knowing her red marked corrections didn’t define it. It was tossed but my library adventure in the “periodical” section never would be.

This was a few years before I really did buy my first wrestling magazine. It has been blogged and also mentioned in my book Spirit and Belief. I will always have my Great Depression term paper story which connects Warrior and me. Five years ago was another time of depression but we are past those posts….. History, a library, and a magazine all involved the Ultimate Warrior then which gave me a great April memory. Not to mention WMVI of course!

I guess thanks need to be given to that teacher who brought out more of my warrior self. She still battles on today as a warrior woman to the core.💪🏻💖👏🏻👍

Moments and Memories

This post will conclude my experiences and emotions regarding five years ago with Warrior’s passing. I’m not sharing my whole day of shock upon hearing the news on April 9, but wanted to relate my grief and the tribute on RAW April 14.

When my brother informed me of the tribute, I had no idea of what to expect. I just knew for those brief minutes that WWE would be on my T.V. that night. The whole day my stomach was in knots as time passed way too fast. I became more immersed in my activities while trying to avoid distractions. So many scenarios played out in my head as I anticipated that volcano inside my throat. 🌋

I had to tell my husband why I wanted to watch RAW which we don’t. So needed to form my words correctly without tears. Prior to this, it was our family game night that the kids initiated a few weeks before. They picked Clue Jr. and Mama calmed her heart to play. Sometimes these games take too long and had to mention possibly cutting it short. There was something on T.V. their Mama needed to watch. Luckily, it ended with about 20 minutes before 8:00–RAW time.

I explained to my husband how my favorite wrestler passed away recently and they were giving him a tribute on RAW. No big deal to him really. Why did I care so much? After all, it wasn’t just his T.V., right? The eerie part for me was where I sat to watch. Really wasn’t even thinking but ended up in the exact same spot I sat a week ago. A week ago when Warrior was still alive making his last television appearance on RAW. That didn’t faze me until later. Very different feelings just 7 days ago.

While watching after several minutes, my husband saw part of the Ultimate Warrior‘s IC title win over Honky Tonk Man. He looked at the T.V. pointed to HTM, and asked:“Is that him?” He meant Warrior. Since I never liked the bad guys as previously blogged, my face grimaced some while slowly saying:“Noo, he’s the other guy…” Not wanting to cry, a little smile formed on my face. Let’s just say emotion-wise that his comment about HTM was better than if we’d seen Undertaker!!! So very glad to see the Honky Tonk Man get inducted this year.

Guess the humor was needed for just a moment. My husband was completely clueless about all this and I wasn’t ready to share. I was actually better than I thought during the tribute but music gets me every time. Every single time. The song “One More Time” by

7 Lions was perfect with the part played. It seemed so wrong to hear the Ultimate Warrior’s theme music without seeing him running or just physically there. I applaud Triple H for getting the crowd going as hearing that music, well, you just can’t sit still. I do have a post about “Unstable” coming soon so stay tuned… Of course the next day, I watched it all again by myself tissues in hand. 💔😢

After the memorial tribute was over, I knew that volcano needed to erupt. I tapped my foot constantly while digging my nails into the side of the couch. I told my husband he could change the channel as I left the room.

Going upstairs to be alone seemed too obvious so I made my way into our half bathroom off the kitchen. After a few moments of silenced sobs, I turned on the faucet full blast to mask my tears. My ugly cries came yet again. That early April made me lose my voice from grief but I blamed it on the exceptionally warm spring which brought about my “cold.”

I’m sharing my story not out of extreme sad memories or my horrible emotional state back then at all. It is being written to show how grief knows no barriers whatsoever. We all grieve, even over losing things. It isn’t just people. I’ve even grieved over getting our new van a few years ago after having our first one 11 years. This year, it’s a new pool that’s replacing our old one and yes, I’ll grieve again. Am sure Dana grieved when selling Casa de Warrior a few years back.

Your grief is yours alone and it knows no time. You will know what journey is truly yours and there is no comparison. Some can say I was crazy to grieve so long and hard for a celebrity. Believe me, I questioned it also. Grief never fully goes away but just changes over time. I debunk many myths we buy into in my book Spirit and Belief.

I kept so much hidden for various reasons and very glad not to hide anymore. Slay those naysayers warriors! Don’t ever feel like your grief doesn’t matter because it does!! Perhaps Dana seemed so strong to all of us but she has such a huge support system which I never had.

Remember that we all need to be validated and go thru a process to get where we are today. We all go in different directions but need support along the way. I validate your grief for whatever reasons and truly understand. We need to let it out and not push it down. Without my process, I wouldn’t be doing all I am now in memory of Warrior. He gave me that validation and supported me from the start.

So, I am moving on from these moments and memories as I continue making new ones. Please do that too. My humor will be back very soon as it is the backbone of many posts! I realize sharing your grief or stories can be so challenging but know you are not alone. Grief makes us stronger.

Just don’t wallow too much as the spirit needs to laugh as well. Make that grief your OWN and let it pass as it needs to. A Warrior is strong but also tender. Celebrate how your sadness makes you real because it matters. A relative, celebrity, an object or memory, we have them all. Some we lose but some we keep. Make sure you keep what’s important as it reflects your life. The ones you keep are imprinted in your soul. Never let anyone deny that of you.

I will never forget April 14 as another moment and memory for me but know it let to a higher purpose. My story makes a difference just like yours does for you. Never by defined by myths, they are meant to be debunked. Grief will lead to joy. Go with it and your strong warrior self will make it truly ultimate. Being “sensitive,” “emotional,” or “too dramatic” isn’t a curse. It’s a blessing and what a life lesson it has been for me. 💙💪🏻🙏🏻~~~ Kathy

Five HOF Warrior Years

With Wrestlemania 35 and the WWE HOF this weekend, I’d like to share a few of my HOF related memories. I, like most true Ultimate Warrior fans will always remember his induction five years ago on April 5, 2014. As readers of this blog and quite possibly my book Spirit and Belief also may know, two signs in my home fell on April 5, 2016. The third April 5 connector was just last year when I attended a book event that became “The Library Lift-off” blog post. So, April 5 will always remain as another of my most fondest memories with dates and Warrior. Maybe I’ll get something next year with those even numbered years?

Five years ago also brought the first basketball game we attended as a family. My husband and I had gone to a few but never with the kids. My son in 4th grade (yet again with that grade!) had won a ticket to see the Cleveland Cavaliers through school. We were all so excited! Our family of four celebrated my son’s birthday a week later even though the Cavs lost. It was so great seeing this boy getting into the crowd with his chants of “DEFENSE!” I can’t believe he just turned 15.. 💙😲 Where have five years gone???

I remember glancing upward seeing retired jerseys in the rafters. Those names were of players I followed back in high school. Just like a memory of someone else I followed in high school.

While watching the game, my mind thought of Warrior who later in the evening would take his rightful place in his professional home. I did have several moments of distractions of course but all filled with such pride. First my son and then of Warrior. I guess it was a good thing being at the arena instead of home for me that night.

The Cavs may have lost but my son won with inviting our hometown team into his heart. That began those two years of emotion until our BIG title win in 2016. Warrior also won with a different kind of victory that didn’t involve a court or even a wrestling ring. He was gifted with an HOF ring meaning much more than a title or a belt.

So, again where have these last five years gone? I ask that sometimes over the years with my kids but never thought that question would involve Warrior on his passing. That’s why I wanted to remember and share in his HOF more. I’m not one of those mothers who gets all sappy with time. Sure, I can go there in a second but I don’t. It can seem like just yesterday in many ways but the feeling is neutral for me.

I was always home with my kids so heck yeah– the time is very real in its years! They are 15 and almost 13. The same is true of Warrior. Five years can seem like yesterday but then after everything I’ve gone through, it really sounds about right being that long.

When looking at photos, it’s the same yet again. I have a picture of my son from another Cavs game in his photo frame where I see it everyday. That twelve year old looking so intent had no idea Mom was taking his picture. Yesterday and now all at once. The photos I have of Warrior echo that too as is probably true for all of us.

Do you perceive time passing the same or different than me? Guess that all depends on your life and those moments lived which are different for each person. There is no time or space up in parts unknown so as a spirit, Warrior isn’t confined anymore with those terms as we are here.

However you view time, just make it count and become memorable. Warrior would want nothing less from us as he always made his moments count. Gosh, I can still view myself first watching WWF and can’t believe that was 35 years ago! BTW– I was 12. Videos bring memories back even more than photos and that’s o.k. too. It’s good to remember but just don’t live in the past too long.

I reflect on many dates and passages of time but need the happy more than the sadness. I hope you do the same. Five years, thirty, or thirty-five, remember with pride and then live for the now.

~~~ Happy Five HOF years Warrior as I look back on April 5 and know that time passes as it must. ~~~”This too shall come to pass and until we meet again, I will always believe!” ~~ Kathy (with a little bit of quoting Warrior)

P.S. I first started watching WWF 35 years ago as it becomes WM35 this year! 💖💙👏🏻💪🏻🙏🏻

P.P.S. I have used a few HOF pics before so wanted a different one for this post!

To Kill A Mockingbird

I decided to end this month of literacy by sharing one of my favorite books. The last time I mentioned a book was by the ever popular Dr. Seuss. When I taught preschoolers, we always celebrated his birthday at the start of March with many fun activities. I do believe To Kill A Mockingbird is one of Dana Warrior’s favorite books too and I have some personal connections with the wonderful Harper Lee.

To Kill A Mockingbird was one of the many class books we read during my freshman year in high school. Remember also those Gods and Goddesses were that year too! My son will be reading Ms. Lee’s famous book soon so Mom will be interested for sure… I became so enthralled with this story as our class also watched the movie where Gregory Peck won the Oscar for Best Actor. It was a favorite of mine over 30+ years ago and remains true to my heart today. My freshmen English teacher was also so dear to me and I had her for another subject as well.

This teacher taught freshmen but had the additional job of being the senior class advisor. My senior year also brought on WrestleMania VI but more on that next year as it will reach a BIG milestone…, *** I couldn’t wait to get one of my favorite teachers to sign my yearbook as graduation got closer. Before asking her, I was one of two girls chosen to lead our graduation ceremony! How in the world did I receive that honor? I joked with her saying there were shorter girls than us but that wasn’t why. She valued me as a student and that really impacted me. Us girls made two lines on either side of the auditorium as I beamed with pride. She picked me. ME… It was something I never forgot and never will. Also, graduation means “Pomp and Circumstance” which was Randy Savage’s entrance music. Back then, oh no! Today, “oh yeah!”

When I did ask my teacher to sign the yearbook she mentioned our times in class together. She wrote this: “You lead your class beautifully! Long line Atticus!” Atticus Finch is the main character in To Kill A Mockingbird. Three years later and she remembered personally. Words do matter just like I mention in my book Spirit and Belief. We never forget the influence they have. I never forgot Warrior’s either. It’s like the WWE slogan previously blogged about Then, Now, and Forever. It’s never just the words but how they make you feel. Whatever that emotion is, it stays with you if it truly matters.

After my Grandma passed away over six years ago, my mom and I began cleaning out many things from her house. I ventured up into the attic alone to contemplate and relive memories by myself. She had this enormous rotating wooden bookstand one would find in a library. Years before, I’d come take a peek but now stayed longer. My Grandma had given me Danielle Steel romance novels to read long ago but now I saw others.

It was then I spotted one of my favorites inside this huge stand. Immediately, I knew it had to be mine. After all, Grandma had given me as her only goddaughter plenty of other treasures over the years. When I came downstairs, my mom was surprised to see only one book in my hand. I told her the others didn’t interest me and this one was well, quite personal.

A few years ago, I heard how Harper Lee finally wrote a sequel to her best selling novel. I found it in the library detailing the life of a now grown up Scout Finch. Go Set A Watchman was released and then the following year, Ms. Lee passed away at almost 90. It was like her destiny to finally tell more of the story made popular 40 years prior.

We need to “write” our stories however they come to life for us. No need to publish but just make them your destiny everyday. This story today was brought on by another’s written before I was even born. I hope my son enjoys To Kill A Mockingbird in some way. No, he won’t have the same experiences but my wish is that some book along his destiny will influence his memories as is my wish for my daughter and all of you.

I reread my Grandma’s book shortly after bringing it home as the smell reminds me of her. From freshmen English, senior year, reading, writing my own book, and now— it all makes a difference. Every month should be for advocating literacy since the littlest words can truly create lasting memories. THANK YOU Harper Lee…. “Long Line Atticus!”

P.S. The table in the photo also belonged to my Grandparents and was in their home for years… ❤️

Ultimate Warrior 2019?

Before I begin today’s post, a quick acknowledgment is sent out to WWE’s own Sue Aitchison on receiving the Warrior Award this year during the HOF ceremony. Sue has been a longtime WWE employee for over 30 years and heads up the Make-A-Wish program. She has helped grant wishes to over 6,000 kids! I am so excited to see another woman receive this honor! Well deserved and congratulations to Sue!! 👏🏻🏆

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the idea of U.W. being bad but today harbors another idea… A new question has been coming to my mind lately and maybe some of you Warrior fans or WWE followers can help me? I have often wondered if the Ultimate Warrior character would work in pro-wrestling today. Let’s look at their slogan of Then, Now, and Forever. Of course then. Of course forever. What about now? My first answer was an emphatic NO! Then, I thought of the little things. Remember, I don’t watch today so again all my feelings.

The paint is still used by some performers in small ways, some guys have a lot of hair going on, yelling- yes, muscles- ok, there’s all that. The no’s of course would be the running, addressing the “gods,” thumping his chest, shaking ropes, snarling, and let’s not forget all that color. Dana Warrior has also said she misses the colorful performers of yesteryear with all their gear. Sure, a little of that still exists but not like it did back then.

The bigger issue of the U.W. character probably not working today is the lack of creativity. Warrior had also said this. The storylines can get pretty crazy– that I know but so much more is scripted today. The performers don’t have as much “control” in a way like they had years ago. Warrior would agree and walk just on that alone.

I think in the earlier years, Vince McMahon let them do so many things with less “pulling on the strings” or being fed a script. They were really trying to become more mainstream in the media and with fans. I know this is true since so much of what I’ve watched on videos is not censored like it is today! Am sure those were jokes but sometimes I literally can’t believe what some of the commentators just said!! 😬

The entertainment industry has changed of course so it’s up to them if adapting fits with their ways. There are several performers who were opponents of Warrior’s still in WWE today. They’ve probably adapted to fit in with 2019’s entertainment standards. I really believe some of what they do would intrigue Warrior. His manager Steve mentioned getting him back into paying attention just a little several years prior to his passing. Very different watching versus signing contracts and performing.

Who knows really? Warrior did always have tons of ideas but sometimes Vince had others. It’s hard to change but evolve we must. Like I’ve also said, my brain is old school with this. I do love how WWE is able to keep it fresh all the time. The women ROCK! I love how their evolution is more mainstream than ever and with Mattigan Warrior planning her run to the ring– even better! 💖

Warrior entered the then WWF at a perfect time as it was his destiny. They needed another good guy superhero and he needed them. He was involved in so many insane antics then so he’d probably love the stunts and props of today. I just feel he’d want more creative input and they don’t get as much anymore.

So, overall– would his character work today? As a whole, no. In pieces, yes. Would Warrior agree? Yes. It’s all of him or none of him (as some performers tried to emulate) and I concur. Sure, you can create a brand new “version” of a similar Ultimate Warrior but it wouldn’t be authentic and he surely is/was.

I do like the versatility of what they have in WWE today. Many performers use their real names. Rarely heard of back then unless it was part of the gimmick. Some also don’t really feel the need to add to their gear much at all. Just the basics. It works and that’s all that matters. Warrior would get bored but hey, it’s the now!

Some pay homage to our “heroes” of the past and that’s different as they consider them mentors. What an honor that is. I heard how Batista shakes ropes and Warrior loved that. To create a character that remains in minds and hearts forever is truly legendary. The current superstars are already doing this as we have our superstars of an era gone before.

To be an ultimate warrior in 2019 is much more than what he brought to television. He pointed in the crowd and said how we all are the ultimate warrior. It isn’t defined by gender. We must strive for our best selves and stay true to our beliefs. That’s what an ultimate warrior means to me as I know it’s how Warrior lived as well. Whether or not a character similar to his graces television again, there will never be another. There will never be another me or you either. Be the ultimate warrior version of your BEST self Then, Now, and Forever… 2019 into the future!!! ⚡️🔥🚀👍👊🏻

The James Boys

This little adventure involved chaperoning a Fourth Grade Field Trip of my son’s five years ago. Oh, those memories of everything back then as I remembered this one… Both my kids had a Family Fun Center as part of their end of the year field trips. These were in fourth and fifth grade and I chose the first year to chaperone both. Two mothers in charge of around 6 kids each for a group. I always loved the outdoor warmer weather trips and tagged along on a few.

When you sign up to chaperone, your child gets to pick the kids for their group. Of course my son rallied up his comrades of all boys. Once I saw the list, yet again another Warrior moment. My son isn’t a James nor was another boy but the other four were. I giggled knowing these “James Boys” were in my charge for the day. Believe me, I asked my son if he selected these on purpose because of their names but he told me how he did like them. They were all friends. Hard to believe FOUR JAMES in the same class despite the popularity of that name.

Needless to say, they all had a blast together while I just contemplated these James Boys to myself. Not all fun and games though, no way! Work also needed to be done. They had a packet to complete and helped each other out. Tasks included: figuring the depth of the bumper boats pool, finding the median/mode range of the number of strokes for mini-golf, and calculating the racing speed of a go-kart track. Ugh… math!!! I loved seeing them accomplishing their packets while having fun too.

What a great day and my son is still friends with a few of these James Boys today in high school. I happened to look up some meanings for the name James and I do believe some apply to that other guy by the name of Warrior. Here is that list:

They are honest, benevolent, brilliant, inventive, courageous, determined, original, creative, leaders, intellectual, bold, independent, a researcher of why, bored easily, has many jobs, likes to talk, inspired, likes to show abilities before an audience, an idea sharer, and outgoing professionally.

www.sevenreflections.com

WOW!! I don’t know the boys that well but who knows– perhaps more in their future adult life those James qualities will come forth. Warrior was born James and I am stunned as to the traits that fit him so well. None of these kids went by Jim since being 9 or 10, that’s kinda young for that shorter nickname.

As most readers of this blog in the past know, I had so many fun little connectors to Warrior then and still do today. Everything always surprises me and to know I even got his given name is so special to me. 💙💙💙💙 O.K, you can scream coincidence all you want but it’s the feeling, remember? If those boys were named anything else, I wouldn’t have noticed or had a story worth sharing on these Warrior writings at all!

Look up the meaning of your name as you might be educated with what is found out. Sometimes we just like a name but also realize its deeper connection to us. That’s why Warrior legally changed his. His deeper beliefs led him to make that choice since it is who HE is… Can you just imagine him as a little boy? Was he a Jimmy, Jamie, or just James before Jim? I really don’t know for sure but am thinking not a Jamie!!

Those James Boys gave me a story with an experience I’d never forget and five years later, it’s finally shared. They were a great group and I know these boys are just as great being teens as they were in fourth grade, including my son and the other boy…

I sure hope despite his name change, Warrior knew some of the James meanings. They still fit him, legally or not. To all the James, Jim, Jimmy, or Jamie Boys, enjoy your name and never forget its meanings– even if you decide to change it someday…

The Introverted Warrior

Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert? Believe it or not, most people exhibit both qualities but let’s take a look at the one in the title.

I am NOT listing synonyms of being introverted since many I dislike but AM sharing some traits. They are:

~~ internal, introspective, enjoy solitude, have a strong sense of self, different views, don’t like small talk, need time alone to recharge energy, and like to think.

Quite the list, isn’t it?

Often times they are misunderstood and struggle to become accepted socially. WE do not have constant social anxiety or extreme shyness. So many misconceptions, so little time.

Let’s take a look at that other word in my title. Do you fans know that Warrior (aka The Ultimate Warrior) was really an introvert? Yep, he has said so in many videos and on The Ultimate Collection DVD. I am too. Here’s another connection between us both. Many of those above traits describe him as well as myself. It’s not so negative but is often viewed as such in society.

He wrote. I write and even published a book! So extremely honored to be included with these fellow authors at the library (which Warrior also loved.) Perhaps most introverts do write, that’s easy for us. Dana has also called herself an introvert and she writes as well. To get out there and sell a book or even a character like he did is very extroverted. I must say that most folks I know are SHOCKED to see my published book but then of course excited too. Is it because of the task? I don’t believe so. I believe it’s because of the nature of my personality that shocks them.

Warrior was told in high school that he “wouldn’t succeed” much in life. Wow… I think he proved them wrong! Once us introverts have a strong passion, we go for it despite the cultural label. Many people I associate with also can’t believe how s_ _ I was in school. Sorry, dislike that word! You can probably guess…

It’s all about the adult you become by following and believing in your purpose. Many of Warrior’s competitors back then didn’t understand his ways considering the character was so extroverted. Deep down he wasn’t. Still intense– yes, but an introverted thinker.

I hope if you are an extrovert reading this, you don’t misunderstand my post but if you do, that’s your right. I’m not bashing a more outgoing personality as I know many whose qualities are very admirable. Just am adding more of that myth busting I do so well! Also, to always educate so we all can let go of assumptions is the real way to be. Don’t be the first three letters of that word!! 😉

The title of this post is me just like the man since us warriors stick together. Introverts LIKE people, really. Sometimes we might not be up for that big party and would much rather stay home. Please don’t misinterpret that message as many do. It’s not that we don’t want to go anywhere so no taking things personally.

I can’t fully imagine how it was for Warrior back then but yet again, he never ever strayed from his core self and I don’t either. O.K., sometimes I do but not that often anymore. If you feel this way as an introvert, don’t let it consume you. We can’t people please and really shouldn’t. All of us judge based on the most silliest of reasons, including me.

Remember to focus on being better while still OWNing yourself everyday. Be better~~ not bitter. I never ever thought that being an introvert meant I couldn’t get a book published. It did hold me back from other things when I was younger though. My book Spirit and Belief has a chapter on removing labels and without them, we all could be kinder.

Whether or not you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert, just know that as people we all want and need acceptance. That’s it. I could go on and on about my struggles with this but the present is now. I was very surprised when I heard more about Warrior’s past but it really explains so much of him and why he never gave up.

We do need to be challenged but shouldn’t have to prove ourselves in order to be accepted. Our personalities do mold us but they don’t need to define us. I have some extroverted aspects but I use them for myself and not to spite others. Introvert, extrovert, whatever.. Just be YOU and let others be THEM.
