la­bels are use­less. they only serve as lim­iters when ap­plied to a per­son. i am a Fencer, Anthropologist, Hick, or Romantic. all of these con­tain some truth but ex­clude other truths. i am more than a la­bel, and my chal­lenge is to make sure that i do not la­bel a per­son. mul­ti­fac­eted and polydimensional…aren’t we all? per­haps i am ADAM, but per­haps i am more than that. it is hard to know how much cul­ture is a ben­e­fit and how much of it im­pedes us from self-ac­tu­al­iza­tion. guid­ance comes from within but can­not suc­ceed with­out help from with­out. or is it the other way around? what is it that makes team­work so in­stinc­tive and in­di­vid­u­al­ity so prob­lem­atic. how do i know if i am be­ing true to my­self and not de­lud­ing my psy­che into a realm of my own imag­in­ings?
