The Outspoken Offender — You Don’t Have to Live by Your Label

Once you identify yourself with a particular group of people — whether it’s social, political, or religious — then you often begin to define the rest of your existence based on this label. Don’t let what people label you, define you. Just because someone calls you a word doesn’t mean that is what you are required to be. “My hope is to encourage registered citizens, former inmates, and anyone facing stereotypes and social ostracism to move beyond society’s labels.” — The Outspoken Offender.
