You are Multi-Talented, Deep, and Multi-Dimensional

You are more than one thing. You're more than just a man, woman, father, mother, stay-at-home parent, cashier, custodian, or any other job. You're much more than that. Don't let anyone, especially yourself, fall into that trap.

Falling in would be an offense to your self-worth.

A couple of days ago, I made the mistake of saying, "I'm just a teacher." It was a slip of the tongue and a slip of the mind. I know I am much more than that. I am also a husband, father, author, and artist, but in that moment, I slipped into that trap.

This trap of thinking that we are only one thing isn't something we can afford to keep falling into. We have many talents. Even if you're really good at one thing, we are also good at other things, even if it's not everything. Your character grows deeper as you experience more and more of life. You are a complex human being, and it's something you (and I) should always remember.
