I'm not all that popular, that rich, or that powerful.
But what I am is so much more. I'm smart, well-educated, thoughtful, nice, giving, a great cook, among many other things.
In the past year, I've been called a great guy, an asshole, a great fuck, great cook, tries too hard, goofy, and an asshole (multiple people lol).
I get caught up in perceptions and what people will think of me so much that I forget to just live. I am happy for today.
