I didn't ask who? I asked what? What do you call yourself? Are you a wife, a mother, a homemaker, an artist, a public servant? Are you a writer, a reader, a doodler, a gardener or landscaper. Are you a plumber, lawyer, baker or chef? Tell us what you are and why.

I am a mother, a wife to be, and soon to be business owner. I am a daughter, sister, and friend. I am a hungry reader, I love it. But at the end of the day the only title that gives me real peace is a child of God.

You're a great mother, gonna make a terrific wife, and business owner. You're a wonderful sister and friend to me and all the things you are make up that peaceful Child of God, who is, well - who you are. So what you are, is certainly who you are. Right? I am what I am because of who I am and Who made me what I am. My biggest 'what I am' is - - - - I'm a big NUT JOB! LOLOLOL

I don't call myself anything as I don't like labelling others so hate it when anyone does it to me. I never ask any new friends what there occupation is as that does not define them. What defines someone is the kind of person they are like what books they read or how they feel about things. That is what is more important.

Doesn't have anything to do with labels foxfire. I don't mind people calling me a wife, a mother, a friend or writer.

For me it does as everyone assumes certain things. For example I have a good friend who other friends say is a earth mother, which isn't fair she is much more than this and it is such a narrow definition of her. btw she hates being referred to this way too. People will always make an assumption on any word you use to define yourself. If I say I'm a office worker it will make you think of someone organised, boring and soberly dressed, which isn't me but it is the job I do most often. It has no relevance. I'm not saying it is wrong to do this as most people do, I just thought I'd give a different perspective, sorry if I upset you.

Didn't upset me foxfire. Everyone has an opinion and I respect your opinion. I was just saying, I didn't see much harm in it calling myself a writer or mother or wife. It's who I am. I'm not responsible for what other people think if I call myself a wife or mother. People are going to make their own assumptions no matter what I do or like. If someone wants to put me in a specific catergory, it doesn't ruffle my feathers in the least. There's a lot more things to be concerned about. It's not that serious to me. No offense taken, none given.
