I always think to myself, what does social media think of me?
I've educated for a few years now, and taught probably a thousand people or more. Every class the topic comes up, who am I? I always joke with everyone and call myself a "walking dick" ( I enjoy making people laugh), but it's true. I post pictures of myself, I post my cars, I post my beautiful girlfriend. I write captions voicing my opinions which everyone doesn't always agree with. I take stances on topics that usually aren't the "accepted stance". I barely smile (even though people enjoy it), I don't post many pictures with friends, which I can probably count on one hand anyway. I say so much, but actually keep a lot to myself. I grew up in a small town. Hunted, trapped, fished, and made paths in the woods until my mom told me to get my ass inside. I left my first love, soccer, because I lost a purpose in it (can still break and ankle or two). My parents struggle, and bust their asses just to pay bills. My brother is trying to figure his life out and I can't really help him. I lost pretty much all my childhood friends for one reason or another. I started cutting hair in my kitchen, went to school, used social media to my advantage, and saved my life in a few short years by creating a brand. The moral of the story is, you don't know me. Sometimes I don't even know myself. Hell, I'll probably look like a different person next week. No one knows what I see through my own eyes everyday. I post pictures of things that I think would have motivated me when I was a "nobody", not to be arrogant. I'm a real person, not a character in a movie. My career focuses around helping others and elevating them, even though I don't do that for the people closest to me, which is something I'm trying to work on. All I ask, is that you understand that we are all people. We aren't characters in a movie, even though sometimes I feel that way. I don't always want to explain who I am because I feel that the people who want to know will take the time too, and the ones that don't, can kindly keep moving. I don't give a fuck what I say, I don't give a fuck who I offend, but I do respect others as long as they respect me.
