I have been thinking about this a lot in the last 2 months. I want to thank you Tammy for having the words to say what I couldn't. I know you wrote this ages ago but I just refound it and wanted to post it here. Thanks again.
Does every member of every family have a label & expectation attached to it, or is it just my family?
Is there any way to break free from the labels we've been assigned?
Is it easier to just accept the labels and be what others want us to be?
Can we ever be true to ourselves if we are not allowed to be ourselves?
Remove me from the Label Program; I resign.....I am no longer a member. I'm done being the person I've been expected to be for 40 years. I am TAMMY. And that is just fine with me."

Last night I finished this piece and just could not be satisfied with it! I didn't like the way that it fell and the links I used, etc. etc.. So I came out and showed to it Mum, who thinks it looks great. I then quoted Edgar Degas," I have much pleasure in destroying a completed piece!" Note:this is not and exact quote. Mum then laughed and told me that I am a melancholic. I did not know the true definition of melancholic till now.
(hence Greek μέλας, melas, "black", + χολή, kholé, "bile"); a person who is a thoughtful ponderer has a melancholic disposition. Often very kind and considerate, melancholics can be highly creative – as in poetry and art - but also can become overly pre-occupied with the tragedy and cruelty in the world, thus becoming depressed. The temperament is associated with the season of fall/autumn (dry and cold) and the element earth. A melancholic is also often a perfectionist, being very particular about what they want and how they want it in some cases. This often results in being unsatisfied with one's own artistic or creative works and always pointing out to themselves what could and should be improved.
Anyone that knows me should be laughing about this point, because this is completely me!
