We are born in so many boxes - where we come from, what we've done, what we are, and who we should and should not be. Luckily, in my life, I've been hit with too many conflicting factors - I'm a Christian, my best friend's Wiccan, the majority of my friends are LGBT, I've had my strengths and weaknesses challenged and been through too many identity crises to count - and I wouldn't have it any other way. My life is a testament to the philosophy that you can't live your life defining yourselves and others by what, who, and how they are, what they believe, how they practice those beliefs, the mistakes they've made, or anything else. Life is too big to be kept in a box, and you've got to get out of your comfort zone and live it - even if you've got to throw yourself out of a window to get out and get living.
