I don’t wear labels that other people give me. You shouldn’t either.
As a baby, I had water on my brain. They told my parents there would be brain damage.
As a toddler, I drooled A LOT and they dicovered that I had a “fat tongue.”
In grade school, I was very hyper and had a significant speech impediment. They gave me a speech therapist and told my parents and I that I may be “retarded.”
One of my 5th grade teachers told my parents that I may never have a “real job.”
In my adult life, I visited and spoke with many different therapists. Learning about yourself and talking to trained professionals when you need to is never a bad idea.
I have been told that I have PTSD, manic bi-polar depression, and anxiety, which makes me an elite sleeper for weeks at a time.
I have taken more test than the average person. I have ranged from elite genius to below average, depending on the day and the test. One therapist fired me as a client because he wanted to follow me on LinkedIn.
I take all of this with a huge grain of salt. I take almost everything in life with a grain of salt.
The only thing that I really take seriously is the Golden Rule and my own personal code of conduct.
Whoever you are, whatever they told you about you, take it with a grain of salt.
We all have our good days and bad days. We have our strengths and our weaknesses.
We also have each other.
