I've been reading a lot of profiles that say that they want someone that doesn't have any baggage and I started wondering what that meant exactly.
I consider myself free of baggage but what do I know. I do have history- not drama; there is a difference. Events in the past that I sometimes wonder about. Where would I be today if....
I read a lot of blogs too, and it seems that everyone here has some sort of story to tell. A lot of them have to do with why they're here or what got them to this point. Is that considered baggage?
The way I figure it, it ain't baggage if you've got your shit together. If you don't bring it up within the first 5 minutes of talking to someone you know you're good. It's all in how you handle it. Just don't try and throw it on someone else and make them have to carry it, right? If that's the case then consider me baggage free!! I do have the occasionsal "Man, I'm thinking too much," but that can always be fixed with a little video gamage.
What are your thoughts on the subject? What constitutes baggage?

You know in all honesty, I think that baggage comes in many different forms. I have more baggage than anyone could ever hope to carry. But I don't neccessarily view it as such. It is my life, not my luggage. It is my children, my lessons learned and my the events that I have gone through to shape me into who I have become. |
If I were to classify something as "baggage", I would have to boil it down to the worst of negatives. Drug addictions, Debt that rivals the national deficeit, and absurd levels of bigotry or hatred. Other than that, it is just history.
