We simply have feelings and have every right to express them without being invalidated or labeled as crazy.
Speaking of labels, crazy is one I’ve worn (somewhat proudly) most of my life. I am now on a mission to eliminate it from my vocabulary.
More specifically, I want to disassociate that label from my persona.
I have much better descriptors I’d rather use; like brilliant, transformed, empathetic, passionate, enthusiastic, devoted, inspired, motivated, encouraged, shiny, talented, and badass!
What labels do you choose for yourself over “crazy?”
