When I was a kid, we lived briefly in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. I was playing softball with a group of kids, and they asked me where I was from. Proudly, I said "Kansas City." Well, then came the Wizard of Oz jokes and the infamous line, "You're not in Kansas anymore!" Confidently I said, "I'm from Kansas City, Missouri not Kansas." Well, now they thought I was crazy. They proceeded to tell me that there was no such thing as Kansas City, Missouri! I grew more irritated over these military brats trying to tell me where I was from! The taunting continued until my Dad arrived to pick me up. I told him the twisted tale, and he laughed. He said, "As long as YOU know who you are, and where you're from...who cares!" My Dad and his infinite wisdom!
It all relates to discovering your truth and living it, regardless of what people are saying. The truth of the matter is that people will talk, but you decide where that talk is going to go. If you are constantly changing what you say and do in order to please others, that is not living your true self. Take the time to discover who you really are, and all your decisions will be well within your soul.
