What’s Wrong with Boring?…

IMG_2658
I have a confession to make… And it’s the truth about me… I am boring… And I think I’ve been boring most of my life… And then I have to ask myself… What makes someone boring?… And what’s wrong with being boring?…
Because I have been told too many times that boring people are the ones who don’t enjoy going out… The party era of their life is over… So now they are just dull… And I did those things in college and they aren’t fun to me anymore… So now that makes me boring?…
And I do find myself in bed by 10 pm most nights… And I do enjoy getting a good amount of sleep… So that makes me boring?….
And the more I live… Well the less I want to gossip and create drama… Because it is such a killer of both parties… And it’s just bad character… And I also feel bad for tearing people down for no reason… Especially people I know nothing about… So does that make me boring too?… The fact that I don’t want to hurt people?…
But then when I consider the word boring… The fact that it means uninteresting…. Well then I realize that’s not me at all… Because my life has been full of interesting things… And if someone really knew me based off of my story… Where I came from… What I’ve done… Well to me i’m not uninteresting at all….
So it’s a little strange to me that we label people with the word boring and claim them to be uninteresting because they don’t party, go to bed early and disregard gossip….
I’ve also never been in love… Or a serious relationship of any kind and i’m 26… So does that make me boring too?…
I guess so… But at the same time… If we knew each other based on our adventures up until this point… Well… Would we be so quick to label and judge and decide who is and isn’t….
And I’m expressing all of these things because if being boring is what life has decided to label me… Well it’s ok… Because I enjoy being who I am and doing what I do…
And… At the end of the day… Well I’m just me… And it’s taken so long for me to just be me…
